This Saturday in Seattle is the world premiere of In the Turn, a documentary about a 10-year-old transgender girl who finds acceptance and empowerment in the company of a queer roller derby collective. The full length documentary is directed by Erica Tremblay, (Tiny Red Universe, Heartland) a skater with the Boston Derby Dames. The Vagine Regime is an “international community of proud queer roller derby folk and radtastic allies” fostering a loving and welcoming community for LGBTQ players. In the Turn focuses on their stories while also encapsulating the excitement of the sport and the fervor of their adoring fans.
The film is playing at the AMC Theater at 7:15pm on October 18th as part of the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Tremblay and other guests will be in attendance and there’s a free reception at Gordon Biersch from 9pm-11pm. Get your tickets now and check out the other screenings on their website!
