Watch the Trailer for the “Sons of Ben” Documentary
Whether or not it would be worth watching a documentary about the middling Philadelphia Union, I don’t know. But there is one in the works about their rabid 2,500-member fan club that seems promising. The documentary is in part a success story about the Sons’ success in bringing a team to Philly, and in part an exploration of their relationship with downtrodden Chester, where many were apprehensive about plunking down a stadium. And a fair amount of insane crowd behavior, one would hope.
The filmmaker is still getting the project funded, and hopes to release the full version in 2014. I can think of a group of people that might be able to help with that.
