Arabic Film Series: 17

Join us for the film screening of the Jordanian documentary "17."

About the film: The Jordanian under-17 women’s soccer team prepares for the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup, hosted by Jordan in 2016. Coming from different backgrounds, each of the girls has faced a different set of challenges as a national team player. But now they come together to face their biggest challenge yet. Will Anoud make it in the final squad? Will Leen be ready to play in this world-class event with so little time to prepare? Will the odds finally start working for the team? 17 follows their stories while instigating a social exploration into the lives of young women who are passionate about a sport they have been told was only for men.
