Bola is an award-winning documentary about LA’s best street soccer team. Comprised of freestylers and street soccer players from around the globe, this seemingly disparate group of athletes has one thing in common: their dedication to bola. Both the title of the film and the name of their team, bola is more than the Spanish word for ball; it’s a lifestyle. It’s not about a physical soccer ball, it’s what the ball has brought them: the sense of community, the brotherhood, the family, the journeys, the highs, the lows, and everything in between.
They travel the world and work with the top brands in sports, but at the end of the day, their loyalty to one another is the foundation upon which everything is built. Win or lose, they’re a family at the end of the day. They were friends first and a team after, and that’s what allows them to excel on the court, to function as a cohesive unit; a single entity rather than a collection of individuals.
