Futbolistas 4 Life is a half-hour documentary that follows the lives of two Oakland youth with immigrant roots as they navigate life challenges and take solace in a sport that lets them put their worries on the sidelines.
The film begins in 2012 and follows April and Ben – two students who are in the Futbolistas soccer club at Life Academy High School in Oakland’s Fruitvale district. As we get to know these teens, we see how playing with the Futbolistas gives them a sense of community and psychological relief. Each is seeking refuge in the sport for a different reason, and striving to excel against the odds. MORE INFO HERE.
