KISSING THE CUP is the remarkable journey of one family–and one nation.

KISSING THE CUP is an intimate account of Brazil’s 1970 World Cup winning captain Carlos Alberto Torres. The film explores how El Capitao and his families lives reflect Brazilian society over the last 50 years and glimpse Brazil’s future. From one man’s life transformed by futebol success to a son playing in the shadow of a legend, then onto the next generation: raised in Japan, educated in England, and building a career in marketing as an entrepreneur informed by a legacy of greatness.
