Football : A Beautiful Life

“When Brazilian legend Pelé describes football as ‘a beautiful game’ kids in Malappuram will correct him : It’s a beautiful life”
– Shahabaz Aman on Football madness in Malappuram, Kerala

Football – A Beautiful Life, curated by Jan Tilman Schwab, is a 6–day football film programme to celebrate football, the beautiful game. The film package will be a mix of features and documentaries from around the world, followed by a post screening discussion. As Panjim celebrates 175 years, programming screenings around football is of great relevance. The programme will celebrate Football, a game deeply imbedded in the history and culture of Goa. There is nothing that resonates with Goans better than Football. The people of Goa are good at playing, understanding and enjoying the game. The films demonstrate the unifying power of football that brings individuals together and creates a sense of community. The screenings cherish the beautiful game and enhance the love for this beautiful life.
