Screening followed by Q&A with director Karyn Kusama, moderated by Lisa Duva.

Cooped up in the Red Hook housing projects with her father and brother, Diana (Michelle Rodriguez) needs an outlet for her fierce temper, and when her father stands in the way of her developing passion for boxing, she strikes out on her own to embark on the merciless training regimen that will eventually make her a champion. Kusama’s feature debut—also then-nonprofessional Rodriguez’s first movie—was a Sundance phenomenon and critical cause célèbre, a tough-minded and compassionate independent film about commitment in sport and, eventually, in love, made with the same gritty determination that its protagonist displays.
