EYE International - your Dutch film connection


KEEPER is a documentary about the outsiders in football, and a tribute to the outsiders in life.

In football, most attention is given to scoring goals - to the attackers and the strikers. This film focuses on the individuals between the posts - the goalkeepers. It is a nuanced and at times humorous psychological search for the motivation and wavering character traits of these solitary troopers. By following five peculiar and very different football keepers, this documentary lets the audience in on the excitement of waiting alone (in far too big a goal) for the football action to occupy this end of the pitch.
