Amsterdam Champions

A film by Denise Janzée, Marjolijn Heijnen and Xander de Boer

Every year Amsterdam hosts an exciting street football tournament with a big final on Dam Square in the centre of town. In this long youth documentary, we follow five twelve year old boys who participate in this tournament. They come from different areas of the city and all have different socio-cultural backgrounds. Each boy has to meet his own challenges in life. They have one thing in common: the love for the ball! Who will win the prestigious tournament?

‘Champions of Amsterdam’ is about the lives of five 12 -year-old boys and their love for street football.
