‘WE ARE THE GEORDIES‘ – A must-see Newcastle United film coming to a living room near you this Christmas.
This is the latest film made by Newcastle Filmmakers’ FNA and the second time James DeMarco (Director,Writer) and Zahra Zomorrodian (Director, Producer) collaborated on a feature film project after THE STAGG DO.
While you may be familiar with NUFC legends like Alan Shearer, Malcolm Macdonald, Les Ferdinand and, of course, Rafa Benítez, the legions of fans are the real stars in this documentary.
It takes a unique look through the eyes of 11 NUFC fans from across the spectrum, an in-depth, close-up view of what it takes to be a supporter: the travelling, the sacrifices the highs, the lows, the passion, the unwavering belief – the FAITH – as we join them on their arduous and emotional season-long journey to help lift a once great club back to the top flight. Led by world-renowned manager, Rafa Benítez, who only six months earlier had been manager of Real Madrid (from the Bernabeu to Barnsley, who could resist?) and who had surprised many when he decided to stay on as manager of NUFC after their relegation to the second tier of English football. 46 matches, 9,570 miles, Join the Rafalution!
Here’s the official trailer:
