EAGLES FROM ȚAGA (Adina Popescu, Iulian-Manuel Ghervas, 2022, Romania, Slovakia)

Every Sunday, Mr. Nelu, 87, travels to the old, bumpy pitch in the Romanian village of Taga to prepare it for a match his team is likely to lose. The football club Vulturii din Țaga has never managed to get out of the lowest Romanian league and regularly finishes in the bottom half. However, Nelu has not given up and is still trying to raise money and find players who could break the curse.

The film is available on KineDok's VOD in all KineDok countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Georgia and Croatia). To see it for free, you need a voucher, which you can request at
