Help support “Gringos at the Gate”

Last summer I was a contributor to a KPFK show called “The People’s Game” that aired during the World Cup.

A co-contributor/host/guest on the show was Altadena filmmaker Pablo Miralles who is in the final stages of making a documentary called “Gringos at the Gate” along with two other graduates of UCLA’s film school. The subject is a familiar one to those of us in Southern California – it looks at the massive gulf between soccer cultures in the U.S. and Mexico, but also “the growing Mexican-American population’s divided, and often mixed, national and cultural allegiances.”

Well, Miralles needs a little financial help to finish the film and is seeking assistance from the local soccer community.

If you’re so inclined, check out the video above for more information and a trailer, then click here to make a pledge of as little $1.

There are also several more links at the site providing more details.

It’s a film that looks like it will be an invaluable addition to understanding soccer culture locally, nationally and south of the border.
