Join us for the screening of The Fits, followed by a panel led by the Women's & Gender Studies Program, Office of Multicultural Affairs, and the Women's Center. Filmed and set in Cincinnati, Ohio, The Fits cuts a tense psychological portrait of contemporary girlhood. Toni is trained to be a fighter—literally—but her longing to fit in with an athletic all-girl drill team leaves her fighting on uncertain ground: a mysterious illness known as "the fits," based on actual case histories among adolescent girls, surreally dramatizes the tension between "fitness" and "formation" in these intensely formative years.
