(Work-in-Progress/Advance Screening) As invigoratingly brash and boldly fresh as its subjects, Minnesota Mean follows a year in the lives of the Minnesota RollerGirls, one of the most competitive roller derby teams in the world, as they strive to win the Hydra, the top prize in the sport. Their riveting journey illuminates the unique physical and social challenges of a demanding sport and the deep power of friendship–and by the end, it’ll have you itching to lace up your own skates and hit the track!
