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. This event is free and open to the public.
