“An unflinching and poignant insight into the trials and tribulations, both personal and sporting, of the women on the forefront of Ireland’s burgeoning Roller Derby scene. It also features one of the more intense Dublin Cork rivalries you’re likely to see for a while.”
Ireland’s recession pushes young people out. Surplus to requirement in the world beyond the Roller Derby track, the fast paced and aggressive Derby world becomes a haven for determined, pissed-off women in a crippled country. Young Irish women go on a high-octane Roller Derby odyssey in search of a means for self-expression, a fight to be fought, and, above all, a team that needs them. But how will responsibility and power affect the new leaders? With total access over 4 years, starting with the first-ever Irish team as they prepare for the World Cup in 2011, Revolutions follows this exciting sports arc, capturing the story as it unfolds, and observing fascinating rivalries and real character development.
Director Laura McGann will attend.
