Forever Pure

This documentary tracks one season of the Beitar Jerusalem Football Club, the most popular and controversial football team in Israel. It was the only club in the Premier League never to sign an Arab player until the 2012-13 season, when a secretive transfer deal brought two Muslim players from Chechnya. The deal inspired the most racist campaign in Israeli sports, sending the club spiraling out of control. This film premiered on PBS's Independent Lens in May 2017.
