Screened with Kick It Out (Dir Eli Tal-El, 5.34 mins).

There are over 1.4 million Arabs who are citizens of Israel, facing the challenge of living in a Jewish state while maintaining their Arabic heritage. In Israel, soccer is king, and Bnei Sakhnin has become the first team from an Arab town to win the prestigious Israeli Cup and represent Israel in European competition. Fielding Arab, Jewish and foreign-born players, owned by an Arab, and coached by a Jew, Bnei Sakhnin’s success has begun to represent a symbol of co-existence, a potential bridge between Arabs and Jews in Israel.

After the Cup tells the story of a soccer team that couldn’t create a new Middle East but showed the world what one could look like. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Ivor Baddiel and Itzik Shanan (Founder and Director of Kick Racism out of Football, Israel).
