THE DREAM COACH

51 Min | Italy | 2014 | English Subtitles |

Directed by Christian Nicoletta

Sergio Vatta is the godfather of youth coaching in Italy.

Along the way, developed such players as Dino Baggio, Diego Fuser, Gianluigi Buffon, and Francesco Totti.

"10-year-olds must above all play, because football is a sport but above all a game, and it is in the game that you see the most important characteristics of a character. We can never understand how a child is by his answers and questions, but to see him play we can understand everything about him ... but he must play free ..." -  Sergio Vatta

Amid the centuries-old strife that tears the Middle East asunder, can soccer provide a unique ray of hope?

All eyes are suddenly on Sakhnin, the club, and its Arab star, Abbas Suan, who is called up to the Israeli national team. This is the story of what happens when a feel-good story and an unlikely hero are thrust under a microscope and forced to live up to expectations that go well beyond the field of play.
