Jakub Polkowski
Poland 2016 / 13’

Sofia is a member of the Polish national soccer team. The director, Jakub Polkowski, describes her as Mario Balotelli in a skirt. Clearly, she is unable to adapt to the rest of the group or to fit in in the locker room. Using her as an example, we see just how significant the disparities are in earnings between men and women involved in the sport. Sofia cannot give up soccer despite the fact that her passion has forced her to make a lot of sacrifices.
