First Look: 'LFG'

Post by: AYS Staff 14 June, 2021

Directed by Academy Award-winners Andrea Nix Fine and Sean Fine, LFG is a no-holds-barred, inside account of the U.S. women’s soccer team’s ongoing fight for equal pay as told by Megan Rapinoe, Jessica McDonald, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O’Hara, Sam Mewis and others.
 
In 2019, the players filed a class-action, gender discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation, three months before the FIFA Women’s World Cup, which sets the stage for LFG. The film interweaves transcendent athletic performances with the players’ ongoing pursuit for equal pay, granting viewers unprecedented access to these game-changers as they meet the physical demands and pressures of being some of the world’s top athletes, while showcasing their courage, unflinching spirit and resiliency in an effort to create long-lasting social change with the biggest fight for women’s rights since Title IX.  

LFG premieres Thursday, June 24th, 2021 on HBO Max.
