The Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus
Documentary / English, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian
From the director who brought The People Versus George Lucas to EIFF 2010, this is the official, exclusive story of the world's best loved, and unlikeliest, football pundit, Paul the Psychic Octopus. A cephalopod with a rare gift for predicting the outcome of important football matches, his 100% success rate at the 2010 World Cup captured the imagination of millions. Hilarious, moving and deeply compelling, Paul's story is the epitome of celebrity culture at its most bizarre.
