Once upon a time, in TEDx land… We finally gave our TEDx talk last Saturday, after months and months of preparation. What a crazy roller coaster adventure.

Voila! Our super duper sizzle reel for Flat Track Around the World. Many thanks to Theresa Pridemore and Juvie Hall for bringing the force with them as we created this crazy thing. And special thanks to all of the derby players that we interviewed from the Tijuana Rollerderbygirls, Liga Roller Derby DF, Disasters MXRD, and Roller Derby Guadalajara for their extreme awesomeness.
In summer 2012, the documentary crew of Flat Track Around the World visited Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Tijuana. And had an adventure of huge proportions.
Our adventure in Mexico continues as we meet the women of Roller Derby Guadalajara, learn about their experiences starting the league, and spending some quality time practicing our Spanish and eating delicious food.
Juvie Hall skates with the MXRD and LRDDF leagues amidst various hijinks and derby-related conversations in Mexico City.
Hilarity ensues in the Flat Track world. Thanks for all your support!
The quirky video that launched our super successful Kickstarter campaign. Viva la Mexico!
In which we highlight Guns N Rollers co-captain, and Derby News Network’s Rookie of the Year, Scald Eagle.
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.
