Video: Gringos at the Gate Trailer
My oh my oh my oh my! Looks like somebody finally/wisely realized that there's a great story to tell in the U.S.-Mexico rivalry and based on some of the choice quotes in this extended, 9+ minute trailer it might actually do a fair bit to stoke the flames further.
San Jose-based filmmaker Michael T. Whalen in conjunction with Mexican director Roberto Donait and Arroyo Seco Films tells the story of the Rio Grande rivalry through the eyes of the fans with Gringos at the Gate. Filmed at the most recent World Cup Qualifier in Columbus and shooting slated for August at the Azteca, this is an independent work that will hopefully see the light of day (unlike another U.S. Soccer-centric indie film); if you like what you see in the teaser you can help to make that a reality by making a donation toward further production here. Personally I can't wait to see the whole thing; I'll be as happy as a pig in sh*t when this film drops.
