Argentine director Fabio Acosta has been behind young, obscure stars of recent years such as Jesus Corona, Nestor Araujo and Daniel Steres. The up-and-coming director of Orlando City’s junior academy, Acosta has put out a newly released documentary on young Colombian soccer players and companies responsible for supporting soccer development in South America and other parts of the world.
A collaboration between Athlete 5 Colors (Acosta’s production outfit) and BETM, the “Miracles in Cordoba” features interviews with players such as Karim Alejandro, Edson Saul Rodrigues and Mariano Mirandani as well as business and sports figures who support the development of soccer. The documentary launched Thursday, the day before the North American Soccer League’s debut match at Stadio Son Emilio Iglesias, home of Atlético Capriles.
“This is a ground-breaking documentary that will give audiences the opportunity to discover a colorful, unique world of soccer and the people behind the story,” said Bruce McNall, president of NASCAR, in a press release. “The filmmakers took a unique and personal look at the development of football, the game of life, that is truly very heart-warming.”
