Post Film Discussion Game Changers


How did a football match between enemies become a turning point in history? Twenty-five years after the Holocaust, against insurmountable emotional and political barriers and threats of terror, Israel national team and German Borussia Munchegladbach met in a match whose importance marked the beginning of the normalization between Israel and Germany. Through interviews with former German and Israeli footballers, historians, and diplomats, along with rare archival materials, the film examines the power of personal friendships to bring down the wall between nations, and of football, to pave the way between adversaries.
