DerbieMovieGraphic-17x22

DERBY CRAZY LOVE accompanies Montreal’s top team, New Skids on the Block, on its exciting journey to regional championships against U.K. powerhouse, London Rollergirls, and reigning world champions, New York’s Gotham Girls. New Skids players and their British and U.S. rivals share stories of being queer in traditional sports, along with insights about derby’s recent rebirth, after decades of decline, as a vibrant, original expression of third wave feminism and Amazon-like physicality rooted in punk’s colorful DIY counterculture. Deftly tackling issues of masculinity, femininity, aggression, body image, and gender norms, this fast-paced yet reflective film captures the spirit of community, inclusiveness, and sisterhood at derby’s core today.
