Infinite Football

A film by Corneliu Porumboiu | 2018 | 70 minutes

Hailed as “one of the most original and visionary documentary films to have emerged recently” (The New Yorker), “hilarious and heartbreaking” (Sight & Sound) and “a drolly funny and explosively brainy new documentary” (LA Times), INFINITE FOOTBALL follows the travails of a former soccer star and current local bureaucrat in a small Romanian town who dreams of revolutionizing the rules of the world’s most popular sport. Directed by the great Corneliu Porumboiu (THE WHISTLERS, POLICE ADJECTIVE, 12:08 EAST OF BUCHAREST), this surprising documentary introduces us to an unforgettable individual, a self-proclaimed Superman, whose quixotic quest mirrors the pursuit of our own hopes and dreams.
