The Women’s Film Series presents this heartwarming documentary that follows a senior women’s basketball team as they battle for a spot in the National Senior Games. These fiercely competitive grandmas in their seventies battle physical limitations and social stigma to change perceptions about aging. Raised in a world when there were no opportunities for women to compete after high school, they must learn a new style of play while overcoming the skepticism of their peers. Interspersed with archival footage from the ’50s and ’60s, this uplifting tale is about more than just basketball. It’s about overcoming life’s obstacles to do what you love with the people you care most about. The filmmaker, Angela Alford says, “I have spent the last year and half with these women, documenting their journeys, and even doing a little coaching. The experience has changed me and I hope the film will inspire you." [2013 USA, Runtime: 74 minutes, NR]
