Screening of "The Fits"

Tuesday, March 7 - Sears Recital Hall, 4:30 PM

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.
