Produced by Eleanor McDowall
An examination of the extraordinary rise of the British
roller derby - a dynamic new expression of British female identity and an
intriguing exploration of feminine aggression.
"Eleanor McDowall’s jaunty feature brings us the
oval track, teams lined up to break through opposing lines and score points,
shouting, jostling, shoving, loving it. [...] you have to register your players’ names, e.g. Cilla
Block, Venus Diablo, Raw Heidi. Poise, balance, skill and elegance are also
required. Ditto paramedics."
