Girl´s Football: the book

Just got back from filming Mónica Santino, the coach of the girls´soccer team in Villa 31 (shantytown) that we are filming, talk at the presentation of the first book about female soccer in Argentina. She gave a great speech, and the excitement was increased by the unique stage craft–the panal was seated behind a wire fence, just like soccer players play behind fences to protect them from hooligans. We hope that the documentary will allow Mónica to fight to get more rights for female soccer players in Argentina. She is hoping to copy title 9 legislation from the US.

She also gave us a heads up–next weekend the girls will be playing a game in the famous Boca Jr stadium (not the main field, but it´s great news!).
