London Rollergirls present: Whip It! Special screening @ Genesis

View on Facebook
Join London Rollergirls for a pre-Champs party at Genesis Cinema in East London. We’re joining the events team there and the Wiiging Out podcast crew to host a very special screening of everyone’s favourite contemporary roller derby classic, Whip It.

The kitchen does pizza, hot dogs, and pies and mash, the bar will be serving a very special roller derby-themed cocktail for the night.

Love or loathe the film, we’ll have time for a discussion with skaters about the sport, its representation in the film and whether there really should be a ball involved.

Synopsis: Bliss Cavendar (Ellen Page) lives in small-town Texas and yearns to break free of her mother’s (Marcia Gay Harden) world of beauty pageants and conformity. She sees her chance when she meets the Hurl Scouts, a roller-derby team; she tries out for the team and wins a slot, lying to her parents about her new hobby. Bliss finds friendship and freedom with her teammates, but a conflict between a championship game and the Bluebonnet beauty pageant threatens to spill her secret.
