Goals for Galilee: We Too Have No Other Land

2007, Israel, 62 min  Jerrold Kessel and Pierre Klochendler

This film is based on the book, Goals for Galilee, a winning soccer-based diary, played out within a democracy in conflict. The first Arab club in the top league battles for survival, a metaphor for the Arab minority’s battles for acceptance within Israeli society. Minority versus Majority: it’s the ultimate match for securing equal rights and co-existence.

It was followed by Q&A with the authors.
