St. Louis, MO – St. Louis will be the site of a world premiere movie this weekend. "The Game of Their Lives" tells the story of an American team that stunned the international soccer community 55 years ago.

Several members of that team hailed from St. Louis and much of the movie was filmed in the area two years ago.

The movie will have its world premiere this Sunday at the Esquire Theater in Richmond Heights before opening nationally next week.

Former KWMU news producer Hillary Wicai observed some of the filming in St. Louis and prepared a report in August of 2003. To hear the report, click here.
