L'equip Petit

Roger Gomez, Dani Resines, 2012, 9min, Spain

A great documentary short about a little team in Catalunya with golden values. In Catalan, there’s a saying “amb un Parell de pebrots” or “with a couple of peppers”, which means to be brave and to face situations without fear. These little Catalan children play without any awareness of fear.  Joy and positivity dominate. For every moment that these children continue to play is a moment filled with possibility. To pass. To shoot. To score. To win.
