Ecstasy and Shock - The Football Capital Buenos Aires

45' (GER, ENG subs)
Buenos Aires: the world capital of football. No other city in the world is host to so many football matches. But the pleasure of football is marred by violence and corruption.

The fanatical and often violent fans come together in the so called "Barras Bravas" and cause all sorts of mischief. Fans of away teams are prohibited from entering Argentine stadiums for reasons of safety. In the time it took to film this documentary, three fans died during shootouts.

The use of weapons in and around the stadium is nothing unusual. But curbing the power of the "Barras Bravas" is difficult in a city in which the Club President and politicians collaborate with the violent fans.
