About the film
“While PELADA may be regarded as a film about soccer, it is really much more. This is a film about perseverance, love of a game, love for one’s friends – and for strangers, too. This film is a behind the scenes look not only at football – soccer – but at the lives of ordinary people around the world.

This movie calls one’s attention to one’s values, and doesn’t preach about what those values should be. To a great extent, this is a film about the need we all feel for play. Seeing women in Teheran “playing” is bound to make one think about the effect of religion and politics even on such a basic human desire as the need for play.

This is not a political film,though it may shine a light on some politics. Basically, it’s just a film about people – about humanity, even. Whether the young film makers knew it at the time or not, they’ve made a very profound film. I most highly recommend PELADA.”

Soccer Connects is a Lowcountry-based social enterprise committed to fostering positive personal and community development through a shared love of the beautiful game.
