TCJFF Opening Night: Back to Marcanã
Opening Night of the 25th annual Twin Cities Film Festival!
The only thing more important in life than family is soccer. Roberto (40), divorced with a failing business, his son Itay (11), a spoiled child that snubs his father and despises soccer, and the grandfather Samuel (76), an enthusiastic soccer fan that recently found out he doesn’t have much time to live, depart spontaneously to the World Cup Games in Brazil – their former homeland. Their unplanned trip turns into a emotional journey that changes all of them forever.
Directed by Jorge Gurvich | 2019 | Drama | Hebrew, Portuguese with English subtitles | 90 minutes
