Women in the Stadium is a brand-new documentary directed by Palestinian filmmaker Sawsan Qaoud and produced by Al-Jazeera documentary Channel . It portrays the personal stories of four players of the Palestinian Women’s National Team. Through their sporting excellence these women struggle against checkpoints, which prevent them from training, and against the perception that women should not participate in public sport events. Girls who have suffered hard times in their lives see these young women as role models realizing their dreams. Football becomes a source of inspiration and hope.
