Virtual Screening: We Wanted More
(Das Wunder von Taipeh)

  •   John David Seidler
  •   Germany

Dir. John David Seidler | Germany

Officially banned in Germany until 1970, women’s soccer struggled to get institutional backing. Barely acknowledged and begrudgingly supported, a team of German women took center stage in the 1981 Women’s World Cup in Taiwan as they competed for more than just athletic glory. A blend of priceless player interviews and archival footage, We Wanted More chronicles their fight for gender equality and an equal playing field in a male-dominated world.
