From the mind of J.K. Rowling to the sporting fields of America, quidditch has become an international sensation, and a new documentary will explore the real-life competition.
Mudbloods documents the Fifth Annual Qudditch World Cup in New York City and specifically the fight the underdog team from UCLA makes to claim the ultimate golden snitch. The film was directed by former UCLA film student Farzad Sangari and will be distributed by BOND/360 on demand and special theatrical engagements in October.
“Mudbloods gives audiences a glimpse into a growing collegiate sport that was inspired by the preeminent cultural touchstone of our generation…Harry Potter,” said Amanda Lebow, Director of Film Strategy for BOND/360 in a statement. “Farzad Sangari is a talented up-and-coming filmmaker with a remarkable humanistic touch. We couldn’t be more pleased for BOND/360 to be sharing this film with the world.”
Mudbloods will have its world premiere this Saturday at AFI DOCS in Washington, D.C.
