A campaign by Iris
‘This is family’ plays on the unifying power and popularity of Arsenal’s head coach, Mikel Arteta, building the whole film around him and his ‘Team talk to the Arsenal family’, which is shown in the film to be global and diverse.
The film also features women’s footballer of the year Vivianne Miedema and breakthrough academy talent Bukata Saka alongside his own real 'family.' Arsenal legends Kanu and Berhkap also support the message with cameo’s.
The film was directed by acclaimed director Karim Huu Do and was shot entirely during lockdown.
