Mudbloods

"We want to compete, and we want to show you that this is real." There's a doc about every obscure sport, so why not one about quidditch? Yep, that game from Harry Potter, the one where you fly around on brooms and toss balls through hoops. Except here in the human muggle world, it's played on the ground by die-hard nerds (one of them is a huge Tron Legacy fan) who love to compete in sports. The doc is called, appropriately, Mudbloods is focuses on the resilient underdogs of the UCLA Quidditch team as they make their way to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in NYC. This looks fun but potentially a little too wacky.

Here's the first trailer for Farzad Nikbakht's doc Mudbloods, originally from EW now on YouTube:

Transforming Harry Potter’s fictional competition into a physically demanding, real-life sport, quidditch has secured its place as one of the fastest growing collegiate club sports today. Mudbloods follows the resilient underdogs of the UCLA Quidditch team as they make their way to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. Through nail biting victories and losses, the dreamers, creators and athletes who make up this exceptional community come together to make this magical sport into something you could’ve never imagined, until now. Mudbloods is directed by former UCLA film student Farzad Sangari. The film premiered at AFI Docs in June and will be available VOD + in theaters this October. For more info.
