COPA 71
Directed by:
James Erskine & Rachel Ramsay

 

It is August 1971. Football teams from England, Argentina, Mexico, France, Denmark and Italy are gathering at Mexico City’s sun-drenched Azteca Stadium. The scale of the tournament is monumental: lavish sponsorship, extensive TV coverage, merchandise on every street corner and crowds of over 100,000 hollering fans turn this historic stadium into ‘a cauldron of noise and heat’ match after match. A fawning media treat the players like rock stars. The atmosphere is reminiscent of the greatest moments in international footballing history.

 

But this is a tournament unlike anything that’s happened before. The players on the pitch are all women. And it’s likely you’ve never even heard of it. This is Copa 71, the unofficial Women’s World Cup. Dismissed by both FIFA and domestic football associations around the world, this event has been entirely written out of history. Until now.

CALL ME DANCER
Directed by: Leslie Shampaine

 

Manish is a young and talented street dancer from the City of Dreams, Mumbai. He struggles against his parents’ insistence that he follow a traditional path because they depend on their only son’s support. When he accidentally walks into an inner-city dance school and encounters a curmudgeonly 70-year-old Israeli ballet master, a hunger develops within him. Ambitious and passionate, Manish is now determined to make it as a professional dancer, but the odds are stacked against him. A true-life fairytale from the streets of Mumbai to the stages of New York.

 

A story of perseverance, rebellion, passion, family, culture, and an unlikely friendship – filmed in India, Israel, the U.K., and the U.S. and featuring music from legendary artist Jay Sean and Anik Khan, and a score by Nainita Desai.


Call Me Dancer will make you want to jump up from your seat and, Yes, dance!
