Dream of Championship  

Sophia Ehrnrooth

"Manuel Neuer, Medhi Benatia, Jérôme Boateng, Dante, Bernat…" This is not a FIFA tournament, but a competition on who can name the most football players by heart. Four boys are trying their hardest, and as the list goes on they start to struggle, it even looks like someone is losing his breath. In the end each boy recalls 200-300 players by heart. The short film Dream of Championship is a story about fandom. It depicts the kind of passion that motivates school children to memorize names in such numbers that would impress any history teacher.
