After a long separation, a father and son are reunited during the Football World Cup in Brazil, 2014. The son is a filmmaker and documents the shared time between both. But death appears and changes everything. “On Football” is not a clear and direct record of a few weeks of living together, but rather a thoroughly rewritten and reworked film, edited for months, which were necessary to meet with elegance and modesty so delicate materials like family and disease: a film without melodramatic effects, honest and noble and, therefore, very exciting.
