    • Synopsis
    • The Workers Cup is a personal look inside Qatar’s labour camps, where the FIFA World Cup 2022 is being built on the backs of a million-plus migrant workers. For the first time ever a film team gained access to the most controversial construction site and gives voice to the workers following their enthusiastic preparation for their own soccer cup. Producer Rosie recently won an Emmy for Best International Current Affairs Documentary 2016 for Escape from Isis.
