Taper dans la balle


September 2017: 100 years after the first female football match, Sophie Laly makes Taper dans la balle.
This film follows a female football team specially put together for the occasion, invited to play its own part in Footballeuses, a piece by choreographer Mickaël Phelippeau.
12 female players tell us about their paths, how they discovered football and analyse the stakes of this sport in a society where it is often reserved to men.
They are between 21 and 57 years old, have different lifestyles, but are all connected by their need to play football; a common commitment that induces a rare sense of what a community is.
