Transgender Football In Mexico’s Most Dangerous Neighbourhood | A Battle For Acceptance
This film was devised and produced by Apuntes de Rabona.
ADR are a member of COPA90’s Collective Network, a hand-picked group of publishers, artists and organisations who share our belief that football is more than a game.Their film affirms football’s ability to break boundaries and destroy stereotypes.
Tepito, Mexico is considered by many to be a dangerous neighbourhood, infested with crime and violence.
ADR therefore set out to explore how a football team made up of transgender players have become loved and accepted by this unscrupulous neighbourhood.This film was funded by our newly launched Creator Commissionsinitiative.
Each month, there is a grant of up to £1000 accessible to any COPA90 fan and filmmaker to tell a story they feel the football community should know about.To find out more about our Creator Commissions, please visit: https://copa90.com/creatorcommissions/Check out more from Apuntes de Rabona here:https://www.instagram.com/apuntesderabona/?hl=enhttps://twitter.com/ApuntesdeRabonahttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-TuvaQ35KQOvqGgB4-ZPfwMusic credit:Audio Network:Cumbia Mexico - Juan Carlos Rodriguez Iker Gastaminza.Jazzy Jazz - Andy CooperNearing The End - Jackson KoepeGold Lambo-Jackson KoeperFree audio archives:Yung Kartz - FYEGreat Old ft.
