What if a game could change your life? That’s the question Scrum sets out to answer. Scrum is an award winning Australian documentary that tells a story of determination, acceptance, and brotherhood.
Aside from broadcasting in three continents, Scrum has toured the festival circuit to great acclaim.
Scrum presents an intimate look at the journey of three players on the Sydney Convicts Rugby Team as they prepare physically and mentally for the 2014 Bingham Cup. For these players, being part of the Convicts means you’re more than a team; you’re brothers. As the players vie for a place in the gay rugby World Cup, this muddy, sweaty and visually arresting documentary reveals what it means for these incredibly tough men to be able to compete and be accepted for who they are.
You don’t need to be a rugby fan to watch this film, it is an inspiration to us all. If you challenge yourself and fight with passion then you will succeed. The film is beautifully shot and edited. It shows what it means to be part of a brotherhood, a family, fighting to win the gay rugby world cup. It also shows a vulnerable side of these guys and their fight for acceptance when they’re faced with issues of homophobia and rejection.
