The FIFA Museum in Zurich will be showing the Jordan production «17» by Widad Shafakoj as part of the exhibition «Foot et monde arabe». Join Jordan’s U-17 women’s national team as they prepare to host and compete in the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2016. This was the first time a FIFA women’s tournament was held in the Arab world and the first time that Jordan competed. This documentary accompanies the players before and during the tournament as they challenge preconceptions about Arab women in a sport that in their home country, was long thought to be only for men.
The film will be shown in Arabic with English subtitles in the Sportsbar 1904 at the FIFA World Football Museum. The movie was part of the selection of the Arab Film Festival Zurich 2018 and has been organised by the friendly support of IAFFZ. Admission is free.
