The nature of sport. Fine looping motion, punctuated by violent collision. That is the equation, sacrifice and beauty on the flat track. No names, no interviews. The speed, the grace, the violence of the sport are encapsulated within a non linear narrative that showcases the athletes not the scene
Made in close conjunction with Bay Area Derby Girls.
It gave me goosebumps. I think it was just the way it was shot. The direction and the attention to detail. Any derby skater may feel a great sense of deja vu within elements of this film. The closeness of a game. The lead up. The training. The daily rituals. If you haven’t watched this yet, please do yourself a favour…
