'The Beautiful Game' is a film about the impact of soccer on women in South Africa and its ability to transcend all boundaries and create change in the world.
We can all familiarise with the power of football, a way to promote equality for women, youth fitness and cross cultural understanding.
Why should playing football be a potentially life threatening decision for some women? The film gives a powerful insight into the impact of soccer on women in South Africa, demonstrating how the incredible young women who play for City Lads Ladies play not only for the love of the game, but also for a dream that it may help liberate women throughout the world.
The Beautiful Game is a story about the impact of soccer on women in South Africa-- who use their love for the sport to challenge gender discrimination, gender-based violence and deep-seated cultural stereotyping-- and demonstrate soccer’s ability to transcend all boundaries and reshape the perception of women throughout the world. Award-winning Director/Producer Danny Turken and Executive Producers, including the multiple Emmy award-winning and Oscar nominated filmmaker Sam Pollard and award-winning Executive Producer W. Wilder Knight, are all a part of the team behind this project.
