The Other Sport (Swedish title: Den Andra Sporten) is a three-tale documentary series focusing on the often harsh conditions of women’s football in Sweden since the mid 1960’s up until the present day.
The three various approaches to story are being told from the perspective of today’s reality – The Winning Call (Vinnarskallar) – from yesterday’s reality – Women Against The Tide (Kärringar Mot Strömmen) – as well as through a somewhat chronological study and insight to the important dates and decisive situations occurring throughout the history showing the developments of the sport – in Play Seriously (Leken Som Blev Allvar.)
Part Two: Women Against the Tide (44 mins.) – Yesterday’s reality following the women that wanted to show that they could play despite the enormous scepticism surrounding the women and the sport.
