UNDERWRITTEN BY PESIA AND BRUCE ENTIN
Northern California Premiere!
This wonderful film tells the story of a soccer team that couldn't create a new Middle East,
but showed the world what one could look like. In Israel, soccer is king, and Bnei Sakhnin
has become the first team from an Arab town to win the prestigious Israeli Cup and represent
Israel in European competition. Fielding Arab, Jewish and foreign-born players,
owned by an Arab, and coached by a Jew, Bnei Sakhnin's
success represents a symbol of coexistence, a potential
bridge between Arabs and Jews in Israel. But as Bnei Sakhnin
begins its first season after their unexpected win, they know
it may well be their first and last in the limelight. Bnei Sakhnin
must fight to survive in Israel's premier league.
