This quirky quidditch documentary follows the real-life quidditch team from UCLA and their journey to compete in the World Cup held in New York. Inspired by the popular wizard sport portrayed in the Harry Potter series, the muggle (non-magical) version involves running with a broomstick between your legs, scoring on three hoops and a yellow-clad player representing the golden snitch.

'Mudbloods' explores the challenges the team faces. Already considered an underdog due to being form the West Coast, the UCLA quidditch team eventually makes to the World Cup. With 27 states and 4 nations participating, it's clear the athletic tournament is taking off. The quidditch documentary also looks at how people do not take the sport seriously, despite its full-contact element and comparisons to rugby.
