Kicking It (2008)
Director: Susan Koch and Jeff Werner
98 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

In the summer of 2006, while the football world’s attention was focused on Germany, thousands of players around the world were training to compete in another global football event - The Homeless World Cup. Narrated by Colin Farrell, Kicking It (2008) follows seven players in their struggles and trials for achievement. Shattering misconceptions about the homeless and those living at the edge of society, the story evolves through these characters’ passage of self-discovery and the power of sport in changing their lives.
