Documentary filmmaker Cara Perlman is sending a film around to all the big festivals.  She has quite the story captured on celluloid.  Perlman followed the plight of Lindsey Van and her fellow women ski jumpers from the joy of the International Ski Federation voting 114-1 to recommend women’s ski jumping be included at the upcoming Winter Olympics, to the gender slap in the face when the IOC said no.

The film is narrated by soccer star Brandi Chastain.  She told the USA Today, “Our history in women’s soccer seemed similar.  I could understand and empathize with these girls.”
