The City Talking
Leeds United Stories, Vol. 1 is a series of five short films from The City Talking, the makers of ‘Do You Want To Win?’. This first volume explores iconic stories from Leeds United’s history, from the 1993 FA Youth Cup Final against Manchester Utd to the infamous showdown with Stuttgart at the Camp Nou. This volume also covers the story of Lucas Radebe and his influence on Leeds’ music scene, Howard Wilkinson and the legacy of Thorp Arch and a special interview with Tony Yeboah in Ghana.
Director Lee Hicken says, “During the filming of Do You Want To Win? we began to think of the next wave of Leeds United stories we wanted to tell. So much happened after Leeds United won the title; ‘Stories, Vol. 1’ is a series of five short films that together, form the next chapter of Leeds United’s journey.
“This fits with the larger plan for The City Talking, which is to continue making world-class sports films for longterm fans and new audiences around the world. When it comes to Leeds United and Leeds Rhinos, there are so many stories to choose from; we can’t wait to premiere ‘Stories, Vol. 1’ and ‘As Good As It Gets?‘ next year.”
The world premiere of Leeds United Stories, Vol. 1 will take place in Leeds on May 2nd at Everyman Cinema as a part of Leeds International Festival 2018.
