Brighton Bandits is the first ever in-depth documentary about a gay soccer team. It debunks the myth that gay men don’t play soccer. The Bandits were crowned Gay Soccer League Champions in 2006 in England. In following the team’s quest to retain their title, Brighton Bandits not only captures the passion for soccer in the gay community but also allows the players to emerge as people with bold and poignant stories to tell. They also raise issues that trouble them from the camp hedonism of the gay scene to the future of a Gay Soccer League. Sprinkled with humor and pathos, Brighton Bandits moves rhythmically between thought-provoking views to soccer action. With no commentary and no musical score in the film, the voices of the players and the sounds of the pitch keep it raw and real.
