Kids can teach us a lot
The under-7 Margatania F.C. soccer team, from a small town in the Catalan region of Spain, will win your hearts even if they can’t win a game. In a day and time where we have been told winning is everything, these kids show us that that is in fact not true. Their love of the game and their teammates far outweighs any disappointment they may have at losing. Their smiles and their desire just to play and have fun is contagious. This video is well worth nine minutes of your time.
The video was posted to vimeo back in June and already has over 450,000 views. In response to some questions, the filmmaker stated “This is not the final project, we hope to be with the team next year shooting during all the championship. This short was originally a demo to show the fathers and mothers of the kids and our closer friends. This isn’t a video made with commercial purposes so thank you very much everybody!”
I cannot wait to see the final product.
