CENT-03. Forever Pure

Israel/UK/Russia, Feature Documentary, 2016, 85 min

“Bottom line, one hell of a documentary…frighteningly insightful…” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Beitar Jerusalem Football Club is the most popular and controversial football team in Israel: it is the only club in the Premier League never to sign an Arab player. Midway through the season, a secretive transfer deal by the owner, Russian-Israeli oligarch Arcadi Gaydamak, brought two Muslim players from Chechnya. The deal inspired the most racist campaign in Israeli sport that sent the club spiraling out of control. One season in the life of this famed club is a story of Israeli society, personal identity, politics and money
