Strong! USA, 2012, 75 minutes Director: Julie Wyman
Cheryl Haworth is America's top Olympic weightlifter, ranked well above all men and women on Team USA. But at 5 feet 8 inches, weighing over 300 pounds, she doesn't fit easily into standard chairs, clothing sizes, or preconceptions. STRONG! chronicles an athlete's struggle to defend her champion status as her weightlifting career inches towards its inevitable end, exploring the contradiction of a body that is at once celebrated within the confines of her sport and shunned by mainstream culture.
Preceded by Down to be Up USA, 2012, 6 minutes Directors: Steven Vega & Victoria Rondon
