In the Game is a Kartemquin documentary film that follows the ups and downs of an inner city girls’ soccer team to reveal the very real obstacles that low-income students confront in their quest for higher education. For two years, filming has been ongoing at Kelly High School on Chicago’s south side. Set in a primarily Hispanic neighborhood, Kelly is an inner city public school struggling to provide the basics for their students, many of whom do not make it to college, either because they cannot compete academically or because their families do not have the financial resources to send them to college.
