Back to Maracanã

World Premiere
Director: Jorge Gurvich
2018, Israel, 90 minutes
Hebrew, Portuguese, and English with subtitles

It’s 2014, and Robert, a divorced 40-year-old, finds himself on an unexpected trip from Israel to Brazil for the World Cup with his father and son. His Brazilian father, a passionate soccer fan, has brought them to cheer on his beloved home team, but Robert’s spoiled 12-year-old son hates soccer and would rather be anywhere else. What could go wrong?! Back to Maracanã is a heartfelt and humorous road trip film featuring three generations of men trying to understand one another and come to terms with lives that aren’t going quite as they’d hoped.
