Jack to a King

By Film Hub Wales


Acclaimed director Marc Evans (Hinterland, Patagonia), Academy Award-winning associate producer James Marsh (Man on Wire), executive producers Mal Pope and Edward Thomas and producer and documentary-maker Gwenllian Hughes present Jack to a King, a documentary film that recounts the remarkable tale of how a 'rag tag' band of builders, housewives, teachers and travel agents came together to save their beloved football club and ended up turning their city into a worldwide brand.

Through archival footage and intimate interviews, this is Swansea City FC's incredible journey from the sale of the club for just £1 to their £90 million promotion to the Premier League - a heart-warming and captivating must watch whether you're a fan of the beautiful game or not.
