A chronicle of the FC Roma football club, whose members have to persuade the other - “gadjo” - teams in the third league to play against them, transforms into an excursion through the various types of everyday Czech xenophobia.

The filmmakers’ inconspicuous, observational approach gives a voice to the charismatic coaches, who, with a healthy ironic worldview, comment on a society that gives them virtually no chance. The dialogue of the various protagonists is the most prominent feature of this stirring documentary. Racism proves to be absurd, often unintentionally comical, but often also chilling. “Hitler doesn’t belong on the playing field.” A film by Tomáš Bojar and Rozálie Kohoutová who will join us to discuss the film.

In Czech, with English subtitles, 76 mins.
