Dirs. Jeff and Michael Zimbalist. 2018, 101 mins. DCP courtesy Fox Sports Films. The extremely moving and inspiring documentary Nossa Chape by the directors of The Two Escobars follows the rebuilding of Brazil’s Chapecoense football club after a 2016 airplane crash that took the lives of all but three of the team’s players onboard. Through exclusive access to the families of the deceased, the new team, and the three recovering players, the film captures the community and team’s many challenges in the aftermath of tragedy. They find themselves divided by a desire to honor the memory of those lost while also preparing the club for its future. The fans and team must find a way to unite around a common identity. “Charged and poignant…Nossa Chape is a testament to how moving forward does not require leaving the past behind.” (The Hollywood Reporter). Nossa Chape will open at the Village East Cinemas on June 1.
After-party at the Studio Square beer garden (35-11 36th Street, Astoria). All audience members 21 and over will receive a free drink ticket upon entrance to the party.
