Birds, Balls and Brighton provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes of a professional football club.
With exclusive and intimate access to Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club throughout the season, this First Cut film follows the team as they prepare to play one of the most important matches in their career: the game which decides their dream of moving up into the Premiership.
The club has come through serious financial difficulties in recent years, but having won their way into the Championship, they are now able to start this season in a brand new state-of-the-art stadium.
Those who live and breathe the club, including the coach, fans, cheerleaders, and even the people who clean the boots, share their experiences and capture the excitement, the personalities and the hard graft of professional football.
Shot in the run up to their pivotal match, and with rarely seen footage of the characters who keep the show running on and off the pitch, can the club achieve their goal of moving up into the Premiership?
First Cut is the critically acclaimed, eclectic documentary strand that showcases distinctive new films by up-and-coming directors.
