WHFF Virtual presents:

RUNNER

Documentary Feature by Bill Gallagher • USA • 2019 • 88 min.

ABOUT THE FILM
When he was only eight, Guor Mading Maker (known as Guor Marial) ran from capture in war-torn Sudan to eventually seek safety in the US. In his new life, Maker began running again, participating in high school track and field and eventually becoming a sensation qualifying for the 2012 Olympics. But because the newly formed South Sudan was not recognized by the International Olympic committee, Maker had to fight to compete independently, refusing to run for Sudan and taking a stand against its oppression. RUNNER depicts Maker’s difficult and triumphant journey from refugee to world-renowned athlete. His story is a distinctly inspirational one in which the indomitable human spirit emerges against all odds—and has us urging those in power to choose to do the right thing.

Purchase a ticket. Watch at home anytime beginning at 8:00 a.m. (EDT) on Saturday, June 27.

WBCN and The American Revolution

Documentary Feature by Bill Lichtenstein • USA • 2019 • 120 min.

ABOUT THE FILM
The amazing, untold story of the radical underground radio station WBCN-FM, set against the dazzling and profound social, political, and cultural changes that took place in Boston and nationally during the late-1960s and early-70s. Told through the actual sights, sounds, and stories of a compelling cast of characters who connected through the radio station, exploding music and countercultural scenes, militant anti-war activism, civil rights struggles, and the emerging women’s and LGBTQ-liberation movements.

It’s “the incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics, and rock ‘n’ roll changed everything.”

The Woods Hole Film Festival presents Film Festival Day:

Life In Synchro

Documentary Feature by Angela Panaglia • USA • 2019 • 55 min.

On May 23rd, film festival audiences from across North America will join together for a virtual screening of the documentary LIFE IN SYNCHRO (tag movie) and filmmaker Q&A. PLUS, when you purchase tickets using the link below, proceeds will be split between us and the filmmakers.

ABOUT THE FILM
If a single figure skater is a marvel, a team of figure skaters is practically a miracle. Welcome to the beautiful, cold, hard world of synchronized ice skating – the toughest sport you’ve never heard of.

Synchro has been empowering generations of women since 1956 when it was founded by a father who saw the need for team sports for girls. Today these skaters lift, leap, and spin together in ways the rink has never seen before, but this innovative sport is still somehow overlooked by mainstream media.

Journey alongside incredible women around the country as they push their teams and themselves beyond the routine and up towards greatness. The stars of today, the newcomers, the passionate amateurs and the founders of the sport all have something to prove. They’re chasing Olympic dreams not just for themselves, but for their beloved sport. Together these skaters are out to prove the staying power of synchro.

Purchase a ticket. Watch at home anytime beginning at 12:00 a.m. (EDT). And 50% of all ticket sales come back to support the Woods Hole Film Festival!

After the film, join Director Angela Panaglia, and subjects Emily Fitzgerald (former competitive skater on the Dearborn Crystallettes), Heidi Coffin (68-year-old adult skater, Maine DownEasters) and Peggy MacDonald ( a skater on the first ever synchro team in 1956) for a Q&A, moderated by Susan Sullivan, Founder/Director of the Women’s Sports Film Festival.

Virtual Group Watch: Start the Film: 6:00pm EDT (or watch it anytime over the weekend!)
Join the Q&A: 7:00pm EDT
