International film premiere These girls are fighting for a breath of air

Kick-off: 22:00 Location: KinOLaden (Wallstraße 24, 26122 Oldenburg)

Iran is a strange and interesting country, the government is dictatorial, religious and traditional in its thinking, but most Iranians are not strictly religious and nationalistic and seek modernity. After the revolution of 11 February 1979, women became second-class citizens under Sharia law. Women fought for their rights for 40 years until the Islamic regime softened a little and tolerated secret freedoms for women. After the 1979 revolution, almost all sports disciplines for women were banned. Football is one of the most popular sports with many followers in Iran, but after February 1979, women's football was banned. Through international pressure and FIFA, Iran was forced to allow women's football and women were allowed to play with headscarves and covered clothing. However, until now, women are not allowed to enter football stadiums and men are banned from watching women's football matches.

This film is a narrative about the struggle of Iranian women footballers to overcome their restrictions and demonstrate their abilities to everyone. The Iranian female footballers narrate their aspirations and dreams in the film.
These girls are fighting for a breath.


Saturday, 11 June
Lecture with Antje Grabenhorst: "Perle ausm Block?! - female ultras between conformity and rebellion".

Kick-off: 18:00

Venue: Marschwegstadion (Marschweg 25, 26122 Oldenburg)

What motivates female Ultras to give their last for the club week after week, to tour stadiums, to scream their hearts out? Probably the same as men - or not? In any case, their presence almost automatically gives them a special role and a minority position, and it is often difficult for them to be a normal part of ultra culture. But they are there and have long been part of it against all odds.

In a mixture of science and reports of experiences, the lecture would like to shed light on the controversial roles and positions of female ultras between making sandwiches and standing in the front row, object and subject status, adaptation and rebellion. And in doing so, they will explore the question of whether women in the ultra scene have what it takes to turn the whole place upside down.


Saturday 11 June Film: The Miracle of Taipei Kick-off: 8 p.m.

Venue: Marschweg Stadium (Marschweg 25, 26122 Oldenburg)

In 1981, Taiwan invited women to their first World Cup - at a time when the German Football Association (DFB) was more tolerant than supportive of women's football, which was officially banned in Germany until 1970. Since the establishment of a women's national team had not been of interest to the DFB until then, the invitation went to the German record champions SSG 09 Bergisch Gladbach. In the film, the former players, some of whom started out in an illegal bar team on a cinder pitch in Cologne-Dellbrück, tell of the conditions, which seem absurd today, under which they fought for their great dream of football, against all odds and with a good dose of humour.

Without any support from the DFB, they played the tournament of their lives in front of hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic spectators in the World Cup stadiums and live on Taiwanese television. Led by exceptional coach Anne Trabant-Haarbach, who also played as a striker, "Team Germany" from Bergisch Gladbach became world champions. With 25 goals and unbeaten. Accompanied by historical film footage - contemporary testimonies of a man's world that seem all the more anachronistic today - the film tells a football story that is about much more than sporting success, namely equality and recognition.

"Kick It Like Beckham" - Cinema Evening & Talk

"Jess is 17, Indian and lives in England. Her tradition-conscious parents have a pretty clear idea of what they want their daughter to become one day: a lawyer and a good wife. Jess, however, has other plans: she wants to play football. She secretly kicks around with the boys in the park. One day she meets Jules, who persuades her to join her girls' football club. Jess is thrilled and from then on plays on the women's football team. But in the middle of her sister's turbulent wedding preparations, Jess's double life comes to light. Her arch-conservative father is horrified. And then there's coach Joe, who really turns the girls' heads..." (Source: BJF)
