Copa 71

Opens Friday, June 21, 2024

This is the extraordinary, true story of the 1971 Women’s Soccer World Cup, a tournament witnessed by record crowds and covered on front pages, but that has been written out of sporting history—until now. Told by the pioneering women who participated and featuring interviews with contemporary star players like Brandi Chastain and Alex Morgan, this eye-opening doc rediscovers the tenacity and legacy of a groundbreaking generation of women athletes.
