The Burning River Roller Girls is hosting a screening of Derby Baby: A Story of Love, Addiction and Rink Rash, a documentary about the rise of roller derby around the world.
The event will take place Thursday, Aug. 16 at the Capitol Theatre.
Our league is very excited to host this screening, but we’re even more excited to meet you! Your favorite skaters from BRRG will be on hand to meet fans and answer questions about roller derby. If you have any friends who want to know more about roller derby or who wonder what it’s all about, this is a great chance to show them!
The documentary explores everything from the estimated 20,000 women playing the sport in the U.S. to last year’s first ever World Cup. Narrated by Juliette Lewis (Whip It), Derby Baby takes viewers on a quest to learn why women’s roller derby is the fastest growing sport in the world.
This event is one-night only, though, so make sure you save the date and buy your tickets now!
