LA Documentaries #1 | “Roller Dreams”

Introduction by director Kate Hickey. Post screening Q&A with featured roller dancers Mad, Terrell Ferguson, Larry Pitts and Jimmy Rich.

This screening is free and open to the public.
Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

In her directorial debut, Kate Hickey comprehensively examines an eclectic wave of young roller dancers along bustling Venice Beach in the 1980s. This documentary archives the dazzling roller dancing community as they faced an unwavering battle against political forces, money and gentrification in order to keep their artistic movement afloat.

This documentary series highlights the vibrant social, cultural and artistic movements that flourished across Los Angeles in the 1980s and 1990s. All films in the series were directed by women. “Roller Dreams” captures the funky vibrancy of the roller dancing movement.
