“This is Kelley and Ali’s Corner.”
Jun Stinson’s short documentary The 90th Minute is screening tonight in Hollywood.
The 90th Minute takes you inside the lives of three ambitious players with an unpredictable future in the world of women’s professional soccer. In the 20 minute film, Ali Riley, Kim Yokers and Rosie Tantillo share some of the highest and lowest points of their careers as professional soccer players.
Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) is the top female soccer league in the world starring some of the world’s greatest players. But the league has struggled to sustain itself since 2009 and it’s questionable how much longer it can survive.
The documentary sheds light on what it’s like to be a female professional soccer player today – a decade after the 1999 Women’s World Cup when players like Mia Hamm and Brandi Chastain inspired girls across the country to play the sport.

BB Ali Riley. Look at that precious face. It’s almost as good as her twitter background. Almost.
