In a Few Years
In a Few Years (Dutch; Over een paar jaar) is a documentary I made in 2012 about a soccer team of 10-year old kids in Utrecht. Their trainer ‘Appie’ takes his role as trainer very serious, and sees it as a position to educate them about life and dealing with winning and losing. Two boys are highlighted in the documentary. Sief, doesn’t seem to care about soccer, the team, or winning at all. While Zakaria is focussed on winning, and can’t take losing time-after-time. While following both of them and trainer ‘Appie’ the documentary gives a great insight of the life lessons these boys learn while going to their soccer training twice a week.
