K+S Soccer Film Festival, in partnership with the American-Scandinavian Foundation, present the opening night of K+S New York 2017
85 min | Iceland | 2016 | English Subtitles | Directed by Sævar Guðmundsson
This is the unbelievable story of the golden generation of Icelandic football. An up close and personal insight into a team that made the world take notice by becoming the smallest nation ever to reach a major final in the biggest sport in the world.
The documentary tells the story of a group of young boys growing up in Iceland with the unrealistic dream of playing for their nation in a big tournament one day. The story takes us from footage from the team´s biggest stars when they were kids to the remarkable qualifying campaign of Euro 2016.
We share that unbelievable journey from an insider's perspective, shedding light on every angle on and off the pitch. This is the inside story of one of the biggest upsets in the history of football. Share the joy!
