The iconic football brand Hummel has released a documentary showing the power of football.
‘The Impossible Dream’ is an inspiring watch, focussing on the Sierra Leonean football team Flying Star Amputees. All of the players on this unique footballing side are amputees, with injuries caused during the horrors of civil war in their country.
The movie was produced by Hummel and the non-profit organisation Football For A New Tomorrow (FANT). The documentary follows the team’s new ambassador, a former pro-player Jonathan Richter. Richter himself is an amputee, having been struck by lightning while playing football himself.
The joy and confidence that the film conveys is beautiful and well worth the watch. There is more information available about this film on hummel’s website, too.
