In the Game

1:30 pm US West Coast Premiere Sunday, October 4 Varsity Theater [maxbutton id="8"] Rate: General Directed by Maria Finitzo Sport Documentary Country: USA Year: 2015 Running Time: 79’ Spanish & English w/ English subtitles Cast:  Kelly High School Girls soccer team, Coach Stan Mietus This warm and often heart-tugging look at four years in the life of a girls’ soccer team at Chicago’s inner city Kelly High School in the primarily Hispanic Brighton Park neighborhood, is an intimate study in sisterhood and hope in the face of adversity. Peabody award-winning director Maria Finitzo (5 GIRLS, TERRA INCOGNITA) underlines the solid sense of family that young players discover in the team setting, as rocky home lives, poverty, and the political forces that dictate slashes to the school’s budget conspire to limit their prospects for a bright future.
