SINOSSI (Ita)

“Chi non sa come tornare a casa?” Louay, Yazan e Rami sin da bambini giocavano insieme sui campi da calcio del campo palestinese di Yarmouk, in Siria. Con l’intensificarsi del conflitto attorno a Damasco, hanno trovato riparo nel campo di Borjel
Barajneh, alla periferia di Beirut, dove oggi difendono i colori dell’Al-Aqsa, la squadra
palestinese simbolo del campo. Stefano, ricercatore italiano e calciatore dell’Al-Aqsa, ci guida all’interno del campo e nel quotidiano dei suoi compagni di squadra. Confinati ai margini della società e del sistema calcistico, i rifugiati palestinesi e siriani rincorrono la remota chance di vestire la maglia delle più blasonate squadre libanesi. Footballization è un docu-film giocato tra Siria, Libano e Palestina, dove il ritmo del calcio s’interseca con le storie di vita dentro e fuori dal campo.
SYNOPSIS (EN)
“Who does not know how to go back home?”. Since their childhood, Louay, Yazan and Rami used to play together on the football fields in Syria’s Yarmouk Palestinian camp. With the intensification of the conflict around Damascus, they have taken refuge in Borj el-Barajneh camp, along Beirut suburbs, where they currently defend the colour of Al-Aqsa team, the Palestinian team that is the symbol of the camp.
Stefano, Italian researcher and Al-Aqsa player, drives us inside the camp and the daily life of his teammates. Confined at the margins of the Lebanese society and its football system, Palestinian and Syrian refugees run after the improbable chance to wear the jersey of the most famous Lebanese teams. Footballization is a docu-movie played among Syria, Lebanon and Palestine, where the football rhythm merges with the daily life stories inside and outside the
camp.
