The Fits: gender, sports and stereotypes – standing out and fitting in

The Fits is a new release film I adored, for its mesmeric and poetic aural and visual affect as well as its treatment of complicated gender politics in adolescence. I wrote about it for the BFI, and the post was re-published on Conversations About Cinema.

Sunday May 28th I’ll be joining Kelli Weston and Elinor Cleghorn at the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley to talk more about the film.
