Can't wait for the start of the J.League season? Just in time for the February 23 kick-off comes this two-day celebration of football-related films, with a total of eight flicks screened at Yokohama's Port Opening Memorial Hall. In addition to big-name documentaries like Black and White Stripes: The Juventus Story (2016), which recounts the trophy-littered history of the storied Italian club, and You’ll Never Walk Alone (2017), an in-depth look at the anthem forever associated with Liverpool, the programme includes highlights like Maya Zinshtein's Forever Pure, which surveys what happened when Beitar Jerusalem – the only Israeli club to never sign an Arab player – brought two Chechens into the fold. And that's not all: the terrace in front of the venue will be putting on fun games throughout the event period. Screening times and ticket information can be found here (in Japanese).
