festival program / Jordan Ressler First Feature Award

90 Minutes

About

The passion for soccer goes beyond life or death. 90 Minutes, a rare film from Honduras, tells four interlinking stories of drama, romance and suspense all tied together by Honduras – and the world's greatest passion: soccer.

In the filmmaker's own words, these are "universal stories of people in ultimate tests of character…that explores the deepest questions of what it means to be a human being. The lens of football (soccer) allows us to explore issues as diverse as immigration discrimination, drug trafficking, hooligan and domestic violence and even people trying to find a purpose in this world that every day feels more and more artificial and for all this to sit under a united thread.

A match lasts for ninety minutes, but the passion and fury last forever.

This screening is sponsored by FlixLatino, ViendoMovies Available with Xfinity and the Jordan Alexander Ressler Charitable Fund.
