Directed by Eyal Halfon (Israel/Germany/Portugal, 2016, 85 min.). Arabic, English, Hebrew, and Portuguese with English subtitles. Digital.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is about to be resolved … by a soccer match. In this politically incorrect, satirical mockumentary, it’s winner-take-all to remain in the Holy Land. As the managers (Moshe Ivgy and Norman Issa) prepare for the most consequential game of their careers, nothing is easy—from finding a stadium to agreeing on a referee. The ensuing trials are fresh and hilarious, offering a new perspective on the conflict.
