Sport & Human Rights

Often the biggest drama in football happens neither on the pitch nor during the ninety minutes of the game itself. The films of this year's festival deal with the power of the most beloved game in the world, and the power of sports in general, and of athletes, to bring about social and personal change. Soccer teams from distant countries, record-breaking runners, and fearless fans – all harness the sparkling hope of sports for a better and more just future.
