Kicking + Screening, the world’s premier international festival dedicated solely to the beautiful game, is hosting its first-ever soccer film festival in Southern California with a special screening of documentary Club Frontera.
Directed by Chris Cashman, Club Frontera tells the story of Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles (Xolos), the Mexican club founded in 2007 that very quickly has had a dramatic impact on the border city of Tijuana. Players, fans, and political figures from both sides of the USA-Mexico border share their personal stories as “Xolos” make a run to the 2012 Liga MX Championship, unifying and rejuvenating the city.
Club Frontera was awarded the Golden Whistle as the best film at K+S New York 2016. Director Chris Cashman is scheduled to appear at K+S Los Angeles 2017.
