Transcript of Los Jugadores from BK
What stories have I found?
Most of the players are really good....so good they were professionals back home, but after immigrating to the States they had to settle because they were not "legally" here.

An energetic film
Beautiful shots-portrait like
No sit down interviews
Stories! Stories! Stories
Slow moments that freeze into their stories....then cut right back onto the field

"I come here to drink and not do anything wrong."
"Then they still go out to bars"
"I met my wife here, she just had a baby 8 days ago."
Well, Kinda sorta
I like the energy behind his photographs. Sometimes it's hard not to confuse filming for photographing. But I would like to have shots of these men that could almost pass for photographs if you don't move for three seconds.
A film with energy and portraits
small crew, couple of weeks, knew the shots they wanted, had established a relationship with the family prior to shooting
