On June 6, at 20.00 and 22.00h the University Venue in Alicante presents the documentary La otra copa (‘The Other Cup’) within the Documentary of the Month Cycle. Directed by Damian Cukierkorn, this Argentinean film made in 2006 tells the story of an Argentinean team of destitutes who will take part in the World Football Championship for homeless people for the first time. La otra copa talks about people without a future who recover their hope.

The championship takes place in Sweden and teams from all over the world compete in it. For some of the destitute from Buenos Aires, this is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to leave their life on the streets behind. They want to be part of the team; they dream about a better life and hope that this experience will change everything.

In order to get there, however, they need more than training and determination. They also need money for the flight and a valid passport. After overcoming countless obstacles, a small group eventually manages to fly to Sweden and participate in the championship. Soon they realize that the purpose of their flight is not winning the Cup, but learning to live together and support one another.
