Off Sides at Edinburgh International Film Festival

Can a pig look at the sky? In the summer of 2017, young ice hockey players from East Bohemia set off on a long-distance trip to Morocco to participate in what was surely the most entertaining training camp they had ever experienced. A few months later, their visit was reciprocated by ice hockey players from Morocco. This exchange trip fostered a lively dialogue between two different cultures, spiced up by many little surprises and doses of liberating humour.
