MUD BLOODS follows the resilient underdogs of the UCLA Quidditch team as they help transform Harry Potter’s fictional sport into a real-life phenomenon and make their way to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City.
“If you expect to see frail, pale-skinned nerds ineptly charging about, think again. This is a full-contact sport, played by co-ed teams without benefit of any significant padding or helmets. People are violently knocked to the pitch, and blood is drawn. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another sport where men and women compete as directly and physically as this one.”
— Marc Mohan, The Oregonian
