2012 Tucker Center Film Festival Featuring Salaam Dunk
Monday, January 30, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
The Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport announces its second annual Film Festival taking place on January 30, 2012, in the DQ Club Room at TCF Bank Stadium. The event, presented by the University of Minnesota Athletic Department, is part of the 26th annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD).
The feature film, Salaam Dunk, is a stirring documentary about an Iraqi women’s basketball team at the American University of Iraq – Sulaimani (AUIS) in Kurdistan. The festival will also be showing the locally-produced short film, Grappling Girls, and a sneak peak of Ready to Fly. Grappling Girls is a documentary-in-progress about women’s competitive wrestling--an emerging sport in the US. Ready to Fly follows World Champion ski jumper Lindsey Van and her ad hoc women's ski jumping family through their 12-year fight to achieve gender equality in the Winter Olympic Games.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the films beginning at 7:00 p.m.
