Independent Spirit Award Nominee:

THE FITS

Directed by ANNA ROSE HOLMER/2016/1hr, 12mins.

With Royalty Hightower, Q-Kids Dance Team


Toni trains as a boxer with her brother at a community center in Cincinnati’s West End, but becomes fascinated by the dance team that also practices there. Enamored by their strength and confidence, Toni eventually joins the group, eagerly absorbing routines, mastering drills, and even piercing her own ears to fit in. As she discovers the joys of dance and of female camaraderie, she grapples with her individual identity amid her newly defined social sphere.

Nominee: Independent Spirit Awards Someone To Watch Award

“Visually lush and uncommon.”Manohla Dargis, NEW YORK TIMES

“It’s the kind of film that’s almost inexplicable – I’m not sure how it was devised, or how it was executed. But I’m glad it exists.”Jason Bailey, FLAVORWIRE
