Welcome to the blog of the THE FIRST WORLD CUP production
We will report here about the progresses of the production and introduce other things in the context of the World Cup 1930 in Uruguay. Let’s start with a new book release by Pierre Arrighi. The book “36 Lies of Jules Rimet: Review of the influential book The Wonderful History of the World Championship” contains some explosives. Since we are preparing a film about the 1930 World Cup, we are naturally very interested in the book. Director Matthias Aberle did an interview with Pierre Arrighi.

36 Lies of Jules Rimet: Review of the influential book The Wonderful History of the World Championship
Jules Rimet was FIFA President from 1921 to 1954. The first part of his book “The Wonderful History of the World Championship” is the basis for FIFA’s official history. “It is indeed an uninterrupted series of lies,” says Pierre Arrighi,
a professor at the University of Amiens, who has just published a critical book on the theme of the first World Cup.
