DOCUMENTARY: THE SQUAD

DOCUMENTARY

THE SQUAD (N/C 15)
LES JOUEUSES

Olympique Lyonnaise is one of the best soccer teams in the world having, since 2011, won a collective 26 national and European titles. And yet, they are less recognisable than contemporary clubs such as Real Madrid or Chelsea, most likely on account of their being a women’s soccer team. Stéphanie Gillard’s illuminating behind-the-scenes feature documentary presents a welcome corrective to this male-centric view of the sport. 

With intimate access to her engaging subjects, we get to know these exceptional players both on and off the pitch, from training sessions to competitive matches, from failures to victories.

Director: Stéphanie Gillard
