The first time Moya Dodd saw football on television at the age of 11, she was captivated. At 19 she was selected for the Matildas and represented Australia for almost 10 years. Appointed to the Executive Committee of international football association FIFA in 2013 until 2016, she was one of the first women to serve on the board in FIFA’s 108 year history. In 2016 she was overall winner in AFR's Most Influential Women. What's behind her remarkable success?
In The Backstories Moya Dodd takes us through three generations of her family – from the Chinese market garden her grandparents tended in Western Sydney to her rise through the ranks of world football.
Developed and directed by William Yang and Annette Shun Wah with original music composed and performed live by Gareth Chin, The Backstories provides a rare glimpse behind the public persona of Moya Dodd as she shares the experiences that have shaped her life.
The Backstories: Moya Dodd was originally commissioned and presented by the Adelaide Festival. It premiered in March 2017.
