“Churubamba – Frauen am Ball”

Carmen Butta (Deutschland) - 52 min

Thursday, 08. Nov. 2007 from 14:00 in Grazer Congress - Grüner Saal       

Peru – a calm mountain region far from big cities. Smooth clouds nestle on picturesque rocks, a lama grazes peacefully, when suddenly a cry interrupts the silence: “Goaaal!!!” A group of women throw their arms into the air. “With every goal we would just like to burst out laughing for 10 minutes”, explains Juana Estrada Huamán. She is defender in the soccer team of Churubamba, a small village in the Andes without electricity, running water and road connections. Every day, Juana, together with the other farmers’ wives, plays soccer at an altitude of 3.850 metres. “To kick” means pure fun, thrill and a time out from their every-day work in the fields, cattle breeding, keeping the house and caring for children.
