A docu-feature about 2013/2014 season of Bari Football Club and the first “happy” failure in times of crisis.
‘A Wonderful Season of Failure’ is the final step of a trilogy from director Mario Bucci based on a great passion for this team and its ups and downs. It tells of the incredible true story of Bari’s ‘tiffosi’, the supporters of the Bari’s football club who, despite the economic crisis and the accusation of corruptions against Italian clubs, ran a crowdfunding campaign to support their favourite team.
The idea for this story has its origin in a simple, yet inspiring, fact: football in Bari is everything but normal. A “failure” enthusiastically welcomed by supporters and seen as a rebirth for their beloved team. With how the clubs last unforgettable season impacts those across the entire city.
