6/4 KUCI 88.9fm - Director Adam Sobel joins Janeane to talk about The Workers Cup

KUCI: Get the Funk Out

With the recent news on FIFA’s plan to expand the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, I would like to bring to your attention THE WORKERS CUP, a captivating documentary that provides an inside look at this country’s labor camps where millions of migrant workers are tasked with building the facilities for the biggest sporting event in the world.With unprecedented access, the film follows a team of migrant workers who are laboring to build sport’s grandest stage while competing in a soccer tournament on their own known as the Workers Cup. But more than a film about a game, THE WORKER'S CUP is an examination of the poorest residents in the world’s richest country as they endure backbreaking work for low pay and agree to strict contracts under false pretenses. With the illusion they might play (real) soccer dangled in front of them, their hope and the love of the game keeps them going, despite their desperate and heartbreaking circumstances.
