‘Las pelotaris – A girls game’ is a short documentary film about women who play the Basque sport of pelota.

A story about a group of enthusiast women who try to make, with enormous sacrifices, their way of life in a sport which they feel true passion: the Pelota or Jai Alai. Despite their achievements in the court and championships, it is hard for them to gain recognition in a narrow universe predominantly ruled by and for men.

‘Las pelotaris – A girls game’ is a story of optimism, challenges and paradoxes.
