FOREVER PURE + Dir. Q&A

Dir: Maya Zinshtein
Israel / United Kingdom / Ireland / Norway / 2016 / 85mins

Beitar Jerusalem F.C. is the most popular and controversial football team in Israel and the only club in the top division never to sign an Arab player.

Mid-way through the 2012-13 season, a secretive transfer deal by the owner, Russian-Israeli oligarch Arcadi Gaydamak, brought two Muslim players from Chechnya. The deal inspired the most racist campaign in Israeli sport that sent the club spiralling out of control.

One season in a life of this famed club is a story of Israeli society, personal identity, politics, money and a window into how racism is destroying a team and society from within.

 

We're delighted to announce that director Maya Zinshtein will join us for a live Q&A following this exclusive screening.
