In 2016, an Icelandic basketball coach decided to train an 8-year-old girls’ team unconventionally: they would learn both mental and technical skills, channel inner feelings into physical results, and become leaders. The team dominated their own league, so they asked to play against boys’ teams. The country’s basketball leaders objected despite Iceland priding itself on gender parity. But the girls pressed on, took up space, and used their voices to question the rules.
2021, Iceland, documentary feature, 70 minutes
Director: Gudjon Ragnarsson
Audience members will be able to participate in a post-screening Q&A with stars from the film and other special guests!
