Two players. 25 countries. One Game.


Pelada is a documentary following Luke and Gwendolyn, two former college soccer stars who didn’t quite make it to the pros.  Not ready for it to be over, they take off, chasing the game.  From prisoners in Bolivia to moonshine brewers in Kenya, from freestylers in China to women who play in hijab in Iran, Pelada is the story of the people who play.

Are you currently caring for an older relative, either locally or long distance?

Is this a role you might need to take on in the future? 

Deb Rubenstein, MSW, LICSW, a care manager and counselor at Iona Senior Services, will lead a workshop on the basics of caregiving, including legal and financial planning, how to find resources in the DC area or elsewhere, and how to handle the emotional and relationship challenges that come with caregiving.
