Synopsis

Two best friends spend an afternoon on a football field, dreaming of making it to the local football team. But dreams come with a price: when a group of older boys interrupts their game, one of them will see it as an opportunity to prove himself, while the other one senses something more sinister is at play.

Director Biography

Rok Biček (b. 1985). Class Enemy, his feature debut, won the Fedeora Award at the Venice Critics’ Week (2013) and was a finalist of the LUX Prize, while the documentary The Family won the Grand Prix at the Locarno Critics’ Week (2017). His work revealed a rare confidence, backed up by a clear aesthetic favouring one shot sequences, specific colour schemes and dramatic subjects narrated in an almost low-key, off-hand, but always controlled style. He plays with the potential danger lurking in small, everyday details. A gesture, a glance or the wrong word can have the potential to spark a fire. Rok is now working on the film adaptation of a novel Dark Mother Earth.
