Event description

Description

Synopsis:
In a country torn apart by political and economic upheaval, a team of young women finds refuge in a sport that rises above their personal poverty and gendered social status. But when this new soccer team goes undefeated in all of South America, these women find themselves in position to win Venezuela's first World Cup and gain a new acceptance and voice in their home country.

Director Bio:
Jennifer Socorro (1992) is a film director and producer born in Caracas, Venezuela. She got into Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in 2010 to begin her studies in Mass Communication, specializing in Audiovisual Arts. In 2012, when she was studying the 5th semester, she begins to work in Al Agua Cinema as a wedding videographer. At the same time, she produced a series of independent audiovisual projects.

As she finishes her studies, she starts to work full time in Al Agua Cinema as head of the Content Department, carrying out projects like Alcabala (short film), Loción LOP (TV commercial), Galacticus (short film), in which she worked as assistant director, cameraman and producer. Later, in 2016, she directs, produces and edits the short documentary Al Agua, a project that tells the story of the homonym production house.

Since she was a little kid, Jennifer developed a big passion for football, getting involved in a more professional way practicing this sport, which took her to a high competition level. Her passionate way of living this sport merged for the first time with her love for videography; two relevant aspects of her life that would result into an audiovisual piece called Sé parte de la Historia, inspired by the feminine football team of Universidad Católica Andrés Bello, of which she was a part of. That's how she becomes the winner of the Best Publicity Piece category in the 2014 edition of "La Venus de Nácar" award.

Having this impulse of getting together her two passions, and Al Agua's desire of producing original content, fit perfectly in 2016 when she proposed making a dream come true: a docuserie (about to premiere) called Nos Llaman Guerreras (They Call us Warriors), which she produces and directs with David Alonso and Edwin Corona.
