Panama - 2017 - 73 minutes - dir. Alberto Serra
Spanish with English subtitles
Just in time to get you ready for the World Cup 2018, this stirring documentary explores the human side of soccer, and reveals just how far people are willing to go to support the sport or become a professional player. Serra deftly weaves personal stories from those who have made it far in the world of soccer to those who have not, and, equally compelling, to those have risked and even lost their lives for the game they love. Serra’s film also will show you the real struggle to become a professional in the ‘beautiful game’ and how difficult it is to make it to the National Team.
