Promotional Trailer

Posted in Videos by Juvie

Juvie Hall and filmmaker Cynthia Lopez are working with an all-female crew to tell the story of the magic of roller derby through the experiences of women around the globe. Is there some core nugget of derby awesomeness that has the potential to enrich and transform the lives of women everywhere, regardless of age, class, wealth, or geography? Will Juvie discover a way to harness the transformational power of roller derby? Or will she come up empty-handed and have to let go of her dream of derby as a uniting and empowering force for women everywhere? This documentary aims to inspire women everywhere to start their own left-turn adventure with courage and confidence, whether on or off the flat track.
