The current political situation in Italy has intensified the public debate and confrontation on implementing and protecting the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. One of the many issues that remain difficult to address and resolve is access to sport as a denied right, especially for transgender people.
AceTeam, the first 5-a-side football team in Italy, was born with this very aim: to become a safe place where people can play sport, have fun, compete and be part of a small community that, through playing the most popular game in Italy, forces sport and the entire Italian society to confront its own limits of inclusiveness.
PLAYOUT is a short documentary that, through the experiences of five protagonists, takes us inside the football team, which presents itself not only as a tool for accessing sport, but also as a political means for the entire transgender community to claim their identity and all their denied rights.
