Passion Unbridled in Brazilian Documentary ‘No País do Football’

The record books might show that the United States romped to a convincing defense of its IFAF World Championship crown in Canton, Ohio, last summer, but the winners of the hearts of many of those who followed the event was undoubtedly Brazil’s national team.

Despite having only played tackle football since 2007, Brazil held their own against more seasoned opposition and brought an infectious passion and emotion to the tournament both on and off the field.

A Brazilian camera crew captured all the key moments in his history-making venture into the unknown and is now asking international football fans to contribute to their crowd funding efforts to enable the unique story of Brazil’s American football pioneers to be shown to the world.

Watch the video to get a taste for the finished documentary and to find details of how to contribute to this piece or recorded history.
