In this film football is something much more beautiful and significant than the Champions League and the World Cup combined together. It’s an amazing sport able to trigger miraculous energy – the energy that will allow a disabled child, brutally disadvantaged by fate and life, to achieve the seemingly impossible – step in a football pitch and play his big game. If little Eduardo can make his dreams come true, there is still hope for each of us. The Football Goats 2017 goes to the film that plants that very hope in our hearts – ‘Hero Steps’ directed by Henry Rincón from Colombia.
Henry Rincón will be a guest of our festival and will claim the Football Goats in person.
