Brutal Beauty: Tales of the Rose City Rollers
With members of Sacramento's Sacred City Derby Girls in attendance!

A harrowing and fun tale of girls fighting for the best of themselves, "Brutal Beauty" tells the story of Portland’s Roller Derby queens, the Rose City Rollers. The Rollers tell how derby saved their souls – and kicked their ass.

“Forget Drew Barrymore’s recent foray into rollerderby: Chip Mabry’s Brutal Beauty gives an honest shot of girl-powered adrenaline in his documentary on Portland’s own Rose City Rollers.” – Willamette Week

“Brutal Beauty contextualizes the sport of roller derby and explores how participating in a full-contact sport can challenge our notions of traditional femininity.” – Bitch Magazine

Please note: this screening is in advance of The WFTA Western Regional Derby Tournament, hosted by Sacred City Derby Girls, at Memorial Auditorium Oct 1 - Oct 3!! More info here - http://rollinontheriver.net/
