Action packed, compelling, and unsettling, this eye-opening film traces the tumultuous 2012-13 soccer season, during which a teamâ€™s loyal fans threatened to tear the club to pieces.
Traditionally the team of choice for those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, the Beitar Jerusalem Football Club is the most controversial sports team in Israel with a following of loyal fans, known as La Familia. In 2012, team owner Arcadi Gaydamak, a Russian-born billionaire, signs two players from Chechnya. Their presence turns La Familia into opponents of their own team sparking a catastrophic battle between the team leadership and itsÂ right-wing, extreme nationalist fan base.
Forever Pure goes inside the locker room and among the fans, as they are caught up in the manic and intersecting worlds of sports, fanaticism, and politics. The Israeli players are caught between loyalty for their new teammates and allegiance to their old fans.
Forever Pure is a cautionary tale of mob behavior, and a sympathetic look at the human beings caught in the middle. The story shows how a seemingly innocent game can be used by demagogues to not only reach but especially influence the masses. Itâ€™s a scary sight to behold but also frighteningly insightful.
