“Goals for Girls: The Movie” was featured recently in the new printed newspaper, El Tiempo, in their important Sunday edition and with a two-page spread. A scanned copy of the printed article (in Spanish) can be seen below.
The quality and size of the feature is testament to the fact that “Goals for Girls: The Movie” is an incredibly worthwhile and interesting project for a number of reasons, not discounting the fact that we are in the middle of the World Cup 2010 and that gender prejudices in Argentina are still rife.
The article not only mentions the documentary but contains a quote from co-director Ginger Gentile that sums up the whole project: “One of the goals for San Telmo Productions is to break gender and cultural stereotypes. We picked this group of girls as a subject because they have a clear conflict based on gender steretotypes.”
The remainder of the article talks about how hard it is for the girls to play a sport they love: Soccer and how the sport has brought them together as a group.
