On Aggregate: The Saga of the Qarabag-Agdam “Horsemen”

Directed by Thomas Goltz

The story a “refugee” football club from Azerbaijan that has not played a “home” game since 1993, when its home city of Agdam was destroyed and occupied during the Karabakh War at the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Despite this trauma, in 2014/15, “The Horsemen” clawed their way to the soaring heights of the Group Stage in the Europa League, playing against giants such as the Ukrainian Dnipro, the French St. Etienne and the legendary Italian InterMilan. Far more than “football,” the film is about gritty determination and resilience in the face of loss, and ultimately about conviction.

Director Thomas Goltz will take part in a Q&A session following the screening.
