The Falcons

Festival 2019

The Falcons are in for their toughest challenge ever, on and off the soccer field. As they head to the semi-finals of Westman Islands’ biggest soccer tournament, they’ll face jittery nerves, teammate hijinks, long-standing rivalries, and pressure from peers and family alike. Like all great sports dramas, there’s a lot more at stake than just soccer, and the team quickly learns that what’s on the surface doesn’t always match the core. With plot twists, white-knuckle soccer plays that take place amidst a rumbling volcano (yes, a volcano!), and above all, teamwork, you’re never offsides when you’re on the Falcons.

The screening on March 16th will be followed by a Q&A with director Bragi Thor Hinriksson.
