In recent years, the beautiful northern island inhabited by much less people than the town being home to the Ale Kino! Festival, has amazed the entire world with its extraordinary football team and their unbelievable success story. Watching the film, we can clearly see what has led to the winning streak. You meet young footballers, brave and pugnacious, just like the adult players of the Icelandic football team. You witness passion and eagerness to compete that shape the character and charisma of the future sport stars. But you also have the chance to experience something that goes far beyond the football pitch: solidarity with another player and compassion for the misery that has befallen him. The young footballers may compete on the pitch, but when the need comes to face the reality and fight evil, they stand united as one team.
The Football Goats 2018 goes to the film that restores faith in real football, being a great adventure that builds a strong community: Falcons directed by Braga Thor Hinriksson, with the script written by Ottó Geir Borg, Jóhann Ævar Grímsson, and Gunnar Helgason, based on the novel of the latter.
