Stéphanie Gillard’s illuminating behind-the-scenes documentary presents a welcome corrective to the male-centric view of sport with a study of one of the best women’s soccer teams in the world - Olympique Lyonnais.

Olympique Lyonnais is one of the best soccer teams in the world having, since 2011, won a collective 26 national and European titles. And yet, they are less recognisable than contemporary clubs such as Real Madrid or Chelsea, most likely on account of their being a women’s soccer team.

With intimate access to Gillard's engaging subjects, we get to know these exceptional players both on and off the pitch, from training sessions to competitive matches, from failures to victories.

Screening as part of the 29th French Film Festival UK.
