In conjunction with it, there will be a total of 4 movies being played at GSC Pavilion, 2 documentary and 2 comedy films. First, Puskas Hungary. Next, Barca’s Untold Legends. FC Barcelona and Messi are adored by millions around the world. However, few people know that the ‘Messi’ of the 1950s was a Hungarian by the name of László Kubala. Kubala’s fame was the reason that Camp Nou was constructed, that still stands as the largest football stadium in Europe. In addition, Brazils will also be playing. It is about a town where they announced that this year the gypsy minority’s football team called Brazilians can also take part in the local football championship. Events, emotions and anger take unpredictable directions in this comedy film.Last but not least, 6:3 A.K.A Past Plays Itself. A comedy and suspense-filled film about a man appearing and spoiling the atmosphere by predicting the goals of the long awaited game between England vs Hungary on November 25, 1953.
