The Arlington Int'l Film Festival invites you to watch ( from July 20 to August 4th)  a FREE virtual film on the AIFF website TACKLING LIFE (94 min) by Johannes List | Germany | 2018 | Doc - Visit www.AIFFest.org Film Link located at bottom of the home page
TACKLING LIFE is a documentary about the Berlin Bruisers, Germany’s first gay and inclusive rugby club. Founded by a handful of friends several years ago in a Berlin park, this gentle and affecting film paints their lives as they build-up to their first major tournament.

Perennial losers when they first meet, the Bruisers greatest achievements would seem to mostly lie off the pitch. From sterling anti-bullying workshops in schools to caring for the elderly, distant relatives, and much more, each Bruiser’s journey is very different. We see a band of individuals come together as a family, who are there for one another as much in life as they are on the pitch. Arousing portrait of a team sweating, celebrating, laughing and crying together, winning and losing, and the joy, after years of searching, of finally finding a community where they could be themselves. 

This film is indeed fragile and profound yet spectacular and loud! Awards include KOK Fest Munich Audience Award.
