The Pistol Shrimps

directed by Brent Hodge, USA 2016, 75'

  • The Pistol Shrimps, Shecago Bulls, Traveling Pants, Princess Lay-Ups are all names of basketball teams, amateur, women's basketball leagues operating in California. Even though the entirety is reminiscent of a joke, and the players on the Pistol Shrimps are largely comics, actresses, and girls involved in the entertainment industry, the fight and the rivalry are quite serious. For Aubrey Plazy, a comedy film and television star as well as for her teammates, this is a way to abreact from the stresses of show business, as one actress says she's playing to win. From this bold documentary, we can see that the problems of the first world can be just as real. 
  • Screening is part of the Summer Cinema at the City Garden Jazdów
