Corneliu Porumboiu / RO, 2018 / 70 min.
A documentary filled with life and football truths. Laurenţiu, a local bureaucrat, shares his florid reflections on football, orange farms in Florida, political utopia and the traces left by life.
The Second Game (2014) was Porumboiu”s previous “football film”.
The films featured in Eye’s Previously Unreleased programme were screened at major national and international festivals, but were never released to Dutch cinemas. Every summer, Eye brings a choice of films previously selected for international festivals to Dutch film audiences to redress the balance.
