The History Film Forum at the National Museum of American History presents the D.C. premiere of Copa 71
 
Told by the pioneering women who participated in it and built from archives unseen for fifty years, this is the extraordinary story of the 1971 Women’s Soccer World Cup, a tournament witnessed by record crowds that has been written out of sporting history – until now. 

This special screening will be followed by a talkback with co-directors and writers Rachel Ramsay and James Erksine.
