Each screening is followed by an exclusive full-length interview between Barcelona and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and journalist Graham Hunter, on whose book, BarÌÅa: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World, the film is based.

Take the Ball, Pass the Ball is the definitive story of the greatest football team ever assembled. For four explosive years Pep GuardiolaÌÇs BarÌÅa produced the greatest football in history, seducing fans around the world.

In this exclusive, first-hand account of events between 2008 and 2012, the players themselves reveal the tension of the bitter Guardiola-Mourinho rivalry, the emotion of AbidalÌ_s fight back from cancer to lift the European Cup and how Messi, the best footballer the worldÌ_s ever seen, was almost rejected by BarÌÅa as a 13-year-old.

Inspired by the best-selling book BarÌÅa: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World by Graham Hunter, Take the Ball, Pass the Ball features exclusive interviews with BarÌÅaÌ_s stellar cast of current and ex-players, including Lionel Messi, Xavi, AndrÌös Iniesta, Thierry Henry, Dani Alves, Gerard PiquÌö, ‰Û_ric Abidal, VÌÎctor ValdÌös, Carles Puyol, Eidur Gudjohnsen, Javier Mascherano, Sergio Busquets and Samuel EtoÌ_o, plus a rare, exclusive, contribution from Pep Guardiola himself.
