    • Synopsis
    • ‘Operários da Bola’ is a documentary filmed during the construction of Brasília’s soccer arena for the 2014 World Cup. It tells the story of different workers, from different states within Brazil, who were involved in the construction and then participated in a soccer tournament within the new walls just for them: the Copa Solidária Operários da Bola. The workers who give their blood and sweat during the work week are also regular brazilians who compete for personal glory in the soccer field, like all the other “Ronaldos”. There are no social schisms, no bosses or managers—just the singular thread of their passion for soccer.
