Copa 71

90 mins


Executive-produced by Serena and Venus Williams, this documentary tells the story of the unofficial 1971 Women’s World Cup, a moment virtually erased from the history of soccer. Filmmakers Rachel Ramsay and James Erskine track down the players from across Europe and Latin America, giving the women their first chance in decades to tell their stories of battles on and off the field. In their hometowns and sometimes within their own families, the women faced routine sexism and undermining of their dreams. They persevered to develop their athleticism and defy naysayers on a global stage, experiencing breakthroughs not only in the sport, but also in understanding power, liberation and self-fulfillment.
