NIGHT 3 : NOSSA CHAPE

1 Hr 41 Min | USA + Brazil | 2018 | English Subtitles | Directed by Jeff Zimbalist + Michael Zimbalist

In the wake of the 2016 Chapecoense airplane crash that claimed all but three of the players' lives, the team and the city were divided about how to handle the tragedy: Should they focus on keeping the memory of the dead alive? Or move on? And as the team travels to play the championship game that the ill-fated roster should have played, can everyone come together around a common goal?

In 2014, four American filmmakers and college friends undertake a four-month journey through Latin America to the World Cup in Brazil. Over 7,000 miles and 8 countries, they explore Latin America's passion for fútbol and emerge not only with a newfound understanding of the Americas, but also a deeper respect for the power of the beautiful game.
