It’s 1984 and Venice Beach, CA is at the epicenter of a pop culture explosion. Young people of color seeking refuge from the turmoil of inner city life flock to the eclectic ocean community to create a brand new phenomenon: roller dancing. The talent and vibrant personality of this multicultural roller ‘family’ draws massive crowds and influence Hollywood. But just as roller dancing flourishes, politics, money and gentrification conspire to take their dreams away. “I wanted to find out why these larger thanlife characters never made it onto my TV screen back in Australia,” said director Kate Hickey, “and I began bringing my camera down to the beach every weekend. As I got to know these inspiring men and women, I never dreamed that their stories and that of roller skate dancing at Venice Beach would be filled with more drama than the movies they inspired.”
Dir. Kate Hickey / 2017 / US / 80 minutes

SHORT DOCUMENTARY FILM: THE YELLOW ROOM
In a series of increasingly lush and intimate encounters, two dancers are forced to confront each other and themselves, exploring the expansion of identity beyond solely masculine or feminine.
Dir. Kitty McNamee / 2017 / US / 4 minutes
