Postby mhusain » Mon Nov 12, 2012 10:21 am

Celebrating International Education Week November 13-17

(Film Screening: Friday, November 16, 5:30 p.m. Peter’s Education Center Auditorium west of Save-Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building).

November 16: Pelada (2009)

Discussant: Luke Boughen (filmmaker)

Pelada is a documentary following Luke Boughen and Gwendolyn Oxenham, two former college soccer stars who didn’t quite make it to the pros. Not ready for it to be over, they take off, chasing the game. From prisoners in Bolivia to moonshine brewers in Kenya, from freestylers in China to women who play in hijab in Iran, Pelada is the story of the people who play. Away from professional stadiums, bright lights, and manicured fields, there’s another side of soccer. It’s the version of the game played by anyone, anywhere—and it’s a window into lives all around the world. 91 minutes.
