They are the last of their kind: the last generation that did not go straight from the training ground to the professional league. For them, everything started on the soccer field: A rough patch with its own rules, where there is no room for weakness. Soccer stars such as Kevin-Prince Boateng, Robin Gosens, Vincenzo Grifo, Nadiem Amiri and Klaus Gjasula took advantage of every minute to get on the pitch. Resistance and hard strokes of fate shape their stories.
"Bolzplatzkönige - Mein Weg zum Profi" tells the stories of personalities from German soccer whose characters could not be more different, while the origins of their careers and their value systems unite them. Through insights behind the scenes and into the private environment of the soccer kings, their path was traced. Numerous companions and pioneers such as Julian Nagelsmann and Boateng's brother and rapper George had their say.
The result is the 90-minute RTL+ documentary "Bolzplatzkönige - Mein Weg zum Profi," in which producer and idea provider We Are Era gives viewers exclusive insights into the subculture of street soccer. For the release of the film We Are Era organized a Family & Friends Screening with about 200 guests at Babylon Berlin, one of the most legendary cinemas in the city. Among others, the protagonists Klaus Gjasula and George Boateng were present.
