Event

The Workers Cup
The opening-night film at last years Sundance Film Festival and premiering for the FIRST time in theaters in nationwide, THE WORKERS CUP offers a never-seen-before level of access inside the labor camps of Qatar, where the 2022 FIFA World Cup is being built on the backs of 1.6 million migrant workers.

The film follows a team of laborers living a real-life version of fantasy football -- a dark fantasy. By day they sweat in perilous conditions to build the venues for World Cup; by night they compete in a workers welfare soccer tournament, playing in the same stadiums that will one day host the worlds greatest players.

We join one team of men from Nepal, India, Ghana, and Kenya whose only common ground is their love for soccer and their desires to earn better lives. Each match offers them a momentary escape from the homesickness, danger, and isolation they endure as the lowest class in the worlds richest country.
