Opening Night Film & Fiesta

Jules and Dolores / O Roubo da Taça   |   Thursday 8th September  7pm


Plenty of countries feel like they’ve been robbed of the World Cup, but none quite like Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro, 1983. In an attempt to pay off his gambling debt and appease his flamboyant girlfriend Dolores, fun-loving Peralta decides to steal a golden replica of the legendary Jules Rimet Soccer World Cup trophy. Too bad he heists the original cup, which puts the entire country on high alert. Jules and Dolores is an imagining of what “could have” happened to the trophy. Based on a remarkable event in Brazilian history that was kept under wraps from the international stage.
