*** PRE-GAME DOCUMENTARY @ 3 PM ***
We wouldn’t be able to host this event without acknowledging the ongoing human rights controversy behind the curtains of the World Cup. The love for the sport and the culture of soccer is vivid in the hearts of Brazilians and fans all over the world, but a healthy debate and reflection are essential and should be present in our minds throughout the games.
In light of this, we will present the documentary “On The Way to the World Cup" (A Caminho da Copa), directed by Carolina Caffé and Florence Rodrigues. The film addresses the diversity of opinion on the positive and negative impacts of the preparation of these mega events in the country’s major cities.
We will also have the honor of the presence of director Carolina Caffé.
- Raquel Rolnik (UN special rapporteur on the right to adequate housing)
- Carlos Vainer (economist, sociologist and professor at IPPUR-UFRJ - Federal University of Rio de Janeiro)
- Juca Kfouri (social scientist and sports commentator)
- Toni Sando (Director of the company São Paulo Convention & Visitors Bureau)
- Vicente Candido (congressman and formulator of the General World Cup Law)

3 PM - Pre-game Documentary "On The Way To The World Cup"
4 PM - Game time
