An Interview with Louis Myles - The Director of "Kaiser"

On this week’s episode of Selecao Talk, Chase sits down with Louis Myles, the director of “Kaiser: The Greatest Footballer Never To Play Football.” The documentary focuses on the life of Carlos Henrique Raposo, also known as Carlos Kaiser, a con-man of the 1980’s and 1990’s who had multiple contracts with the biggest football clubs in Rio de Janeiro despite never kicking a football. The film has enjoyed rave reviews, with the story being referred to as “The Catch Me if You Can of Brazilian Football.” Chase and Louis discuss the process for getting the documentary made, the machismo culture of Rio of the 1980’s, as well as Myles’ favorite interviews in making the documentary.

The official website for the film, which includes viewing information, can be found here.
