Documentary Feature

An intimate portrait of the fierce and fun-loving women of Gotham Girls Roller Derby League in New York City, QUEEN OF PAIN follows Suzy Hotrod, Evilicious, Captain Smack Sparrow, and a colorful cast of teammates in this story of real women who live life on their own terms — and have a hell of a time doing it.

Directed by Cassie Hay and Amy Winston
