Two best friends spend an afternoon on a football ﬁeld, dreaming of making it to the local football team. But dreams come with a price: when a group of older boys interrupts their game, one of them will see it as an opportunity to prove himself, while the other one senses something more sinister is at play.
Penalty Shot premiered at the latest Locarno Film Festival.
“The childhood of many generations was marked by relationships formed on a football field. The roles played on this “stage” were always the same; it was only us, while growing up, that we switched from ‘target’ to ‘assailant’.” (R. Biček)
Slovenian film director Rok Biček was born in 1985 in Novo Mesto. The Trieste FF presented his impressive debut feature Class Enemy and in 2018 his documentary The Family.
