Nossa Chape

Nossa Chape tracks the rebuilding of the Brazilian soccer team, Chapocoense, after an airplane carrying the team to the Copa Sudamericana finals in Colombia crashed on November 28th, 2016. Nineteen of the 22 players perished, along with dozens of staff, coaches and reporters. Remarkably, the team began to rebuild just one month later, and with exclusive access to the new team, families of the deceased, and three living players, this powerful documentary shows a team and a city divided about how to handle catastrophe: should they focus on keeping the memory of the dead alive or move on with their own lives? Additionally, there is also the toll it takes on the survivors and families of the victims who start to question how things are being handled and feel that their stories are being pushed aside.
