In 2014, Brazil hosted the FIFA World Cup 2014. An estimated 3 million tourists, of which 600 000 foreigners, have taken part in the event and have been traveling around the 12 host cities. Millions of others from around the world have followed the event, which was portrayed as the most prestigious World Cup of all time, in the country of football. However, one might ask: Did Brazilians share this enthusiasm? Anger is brewing in this paradoxical country, which has emerged economically in the past couple of years but fails to address its tremendous social inequalities. Since June 2013, millions of Brazilians voiced their discontent and their opposition to the World Cup in the streets countrywide. Their slogan was ‘Copa para quem?’ (Who's this World Cup for?). This short documentary sheds light on the social realities behind the 2014 FIFA World Cup in one of 12 host cities, Fortaleza, capital of Ceara, one of the poorest Brazilian states. It gives a voice to the voiceless of the World Cup, those whose conditions are likely to worsen because of the event. Through four major topics (forced evictions, street children, sex tourism and the awakening of social movements), it shows a gloomy reality, which bears little relation with the image Brazilian authorities relay through mass media channels. This debut documentary is the linear version of the interactive web documentary on Resarch for the project lasted 5 months (from September 2013 to January 2014) and was conducted on site (in Fortaleza). The videos were shot in January 2014. During its first month online, the web documentary (French version) was viewed 50,000 times.
