Film: "Touchdown Israel"

Against all odds, an aggressive new sport is playing out in the Israel’s stadiums. Weekend warriors team up, suit up, don helmets over their kippahs, and charge the field in a season of full-contact American Tackle Football, revealing pieces of themselves and their world along the way.

Secular or religious, Israeli-born or not, these Jews, Muslims and Christians are transformed from ordinary citizens into fierce gridiron competitors on a quest for Israel Bowl glory.
