Diana is a Brooklyn teenager whose hot temper gets her into plenty of fights. These are mainly in the school hallways – until she accompanies her brother to boxing training and develops a taste for the ring. Yet the bigger fight lies ahead, as she struggles to establish herself in a man’s world. This spotlight of female boxing packs a punch, with two outstanding debuts: Karyn Kusama behind the camera and the unforgettable Michelle Rodriguez in front of it. This screening marks 20 years since the film premiered at Sundance and won the Grand Jury Prize. We’re thrilled that Kusama will be joining us via Skype to reflect on her enduring debut.
