FIELDS TO DREAM
“South Melbourne, South Melbourne! Ole, ole, ole!”
The South Melbourne Football Club is one of the oldest and most successful soccer clubs in Australia. So, not surprisingly, the pain of being snubbed when the A-League was established in 2004 is still evident at the Lakeside Oval to this day.
Executive produced and narrated by George Donikian, Fields to Dream looks at the mighty ‘Hellas’ and their quest to again be recognised as the premier football club in Australia after failing to qualify for the 2014 FFA Cup.
This short film takes us inside the inner sanctum as they prepare for redemption.
