What does the Tribeca Film Festival mean to you?
Inquisitive, intelligent films, new tendencies, savvy audiences.
Has New York City inspired your work in any way?
In this last film, yes, the city is one of the main characters, almost the object of desire.
What’s your favorite restaurant in NYC?
Momofuku Noodle Bar
Yellow cab, Uber or subway?
Subway, for the sound.
Why should Tribeca audiences see your film/project?
To feel what it’s like to take on a huge sporting challenge, building a team from scratch and to get a flavor of this particular moment of soccer in the U.S.
