Brutal Beauty: Tales of the Rose City Rollers at Lincoln Hall!

Events, Parties, Promotions, Skaters » Posted February 3rd, 2011 by

Now that the blizzard's passed, join the Windy City Rollers at Lincoln Hall on Monday, Feb. 7th at 8:00 p.m. for the Chicago premiere of Brutal Beauty.  We'll be giving away tickets to our Sunday, Feb. 13th home bout throughout the night!

As Flavorpill puts it:  "The Women's Flat Track Derby Association is currently 100-plus leagues strong (that's leagues, not teams) nationwide. So any skeptics who dismissed the circa-2005 roller-derby revival as trend-piece hype should really see the ladies skate and also catch director Chip Mabry's new documentary, Brutal Beauty. The film peels the curtain on one of those WFTDA leagues, the Rose City Rollers in Portland, Oregon, skipping clichés about white-trash irony and retro-fetishism to highlight the sport's very real sense of community, camaraderie, and empowerment. And kick-ass competition. Presented by CIMMFest and Chicago's own Windy City Rollers.”

Check out Lincoln Hall's event listing here for more info, including a film trailer, and we'll see you on the 7th!
