Netflix Now Streaming Brazilian World Cup Special
Just in time for the start of the World Cup, Netflix has acquired Red Arrow International’s World Cup Special “Mata Mata.” Translating literally to “kill kill,” the documentary feature’s title also serves as the Brazilian term for “knockout match.” It premiered this past Friday, May 16th, on Netflix.
The special features Brazilian football players Danilo, 17, Thiago, 18, and Dante, 30, as they reach to attain their sporting dreams. As “Mata Mata” also stands in as a metaphor for life with its “win-or-go-home” attitude, the behind-the-scenes footage in the documentary should provide gripping content for viewers, whether they’re interested in the difficult business of professional football or not.
Red Arrow International has expressed excitement about partnering with Netflix Latin America just in time for the World Cup this June, having previously worked with them to stream the Norwegian series “Lilyhammer.” “Mata Mata” will further broaden Netflix’s horizons by bringing viewers revealing content about Brazil’s football mania, shown through the view of these two teenage sportsmen and their one thirty-year-old counterpart.Tags: Brazil, Football, Mata Mata, Netflix, Netflix Latin America, Red Arrow International, World Cup 2014
