I am an established, award-winning documentary filmmaker. My last three films were funded by ITVS for PBS. "Maria Goes to the Homeless World Cup" will be a short video about the transformative power of sports meeting the thorny issue of homelessness. This innovative program is achieving results in 50 countries, which are all sending teams of homeless soccer players to the annual HWC. The piece will be timely this summer, during the official World Cup. This is the story of one young woman from Minneapolis, a former prostitute, who is selected to represent the U.S. at the 2013 HWC. We get to know her back home, watch her play, interact with people close to her, and then go abroad as the goalie of the U.S. Womens team. Does the trip actually have an impact on her life? We follow Maria after she returns home to the challenges of daily life. Street Soccer USA, which runs programs in 18 U.S. cities, estimates that 75% of the players find help within a year. Footage is all shot and logged, but not edited. This story will form part of a 1-hour doc about the U.S. Womens team. The link provided below is a sample reel of the entire project, but with plenty of Maria segments.
