Win two tickets to see The Workers Cup

Comments Off on Win two tickets to see The Workers Cup

For the readers in the Edmonton area (or those who will be in the Edmonton area in the first week of May), check out the  screening of the soccer documentary, The Workers Cup.

Sponsored by the Alberta Labour History Institute, this documentary will be screened at Metro Cinema at May 7 at 7 p.m. MT, as part of the Northwestfest — a festival that celebrates documentary filmmaking. Directed by Adam Sobel, the film looks at the workers who are building the venues for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

That World Cup has come under close scrutiny due to allegations of FIFA vote-fixing and, even more troubling, reports of inhumane working conditions for those building these new superstadiums in the desert. More than a million people are working to ready Qatar for the World Cup, and The Workers Cup looks at an initiative that saw 24 construction companies each asked to field teams for a special tournament.  For more on the film, see the trailer at the bottom of the post.
