    • set 3 items

    Meet Rocky Hehakaija: street football star, director of Favela Street Foundation, and special guest at our Women’s World Cup film special: a screening of Freedom Fields on June 8. In honour of the Women's World Cup, Rocky has selected 3 must-see films about women and sports from the IDFA online collection. Whether at school, in the water, or on the dance floor, these documentaries uplift us and smash stereotypes at the same time. It’s the perfect addition to Freedom Fields, in which female football players fight to play in a country where their sport is forbidden. Check out Rocky's motivation video, and watch the films below.
