Take the Ball, Pass the Ball is the definitive story of the greatest football team ever assembled. 

For four explosive years Pep Guardiola‘s Barça produced the greatest football in history, seducing fans around the world.

In this intimate documentary, the players themselves reveal the tension of the bitter Guardiola-Mourinho rivalry, the emotion of Eric Abidal’s fight back from cancer to lift the European Cup and how Lionel Messi was almost rejected by Barça as a 13-year-old.

A first-hand account of the events between 2008 and 2012, the film features interviews with Barça’s cast of current and ex-players, inclusing Messi, Xavi, Dani Alves, Carles Puyol and Gerard Piqué.

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