We have all heard stories about poverty stricken villages where the children make soccer balls out of plastic bags and play barefoot. What if you were lacking dry land instead?
“This film is based on a true story. In 1986 a football team that lived on a little island in the south of Thailand called “Koh Panyee”. It’s a floating village in the middle of the sea that has not an inch of soil. The kids here loved to watch football but had nowhere to play or practice. But they didn’t let that stop them. They challenged the norm and have become a great inspiration for new generations on the island. ”
This short film was commissioned by the TMB (Thai Military Bank) as part of a campaign called Make THE Difference. The campaign aims to inspire people to think different and make a difference in their own world.
