A.N.S.W.E.R. Film Series: GOAL DREAMS

With a report and discussion of the most recent US-backed Israeli assault on Gaza and the West Bank.

GOAL DREAMS is a new documentary feature focusing on national and personal identity as experienced by a sports team like none before.

How can a team without a recognized homeland, no permanent domestic league, no place to train and with players and coaches scattered around the globe compete in the world of modern football? Founded in 1928, the Palestinian Football Association (PFA) is considered one of the oldest football associations in the Arab World. Since being recognized by FIFA in 1998, the team has risen 70 places in the international rankings, despite never having been able to play on home soil. Following the team as they prepare for the 2006 World Cup, GOAL DREAMS chronicles the suspension of domestic league games after an Israel air strike on Palestine Stadium, while Austrian coach Alfred Riedle makes a heroic effort to mold players from diverse countries such as the USA, Chile, Palestine and Lebanon into a national team unlike any other. 2006, 84 min. English and Arabic with English subtitles.
