MIND/GAME: THE UNQUIET JOURNEY OF CHAMIQUE HOLDSCLAW, co-presented by The Berkeley FILM Foundation and featuring a post-film Q&A with director Rick Goldsmith (Doc Night)
From the rough-edged courts of Astoria, Queens to her recruitment by Coach Pat Summitt for the University of Tennessee's Lady Vols, Chamique Holdsclaw was hailed as the "female Michael Jordan," impressing crowds with her artistry, athleticism and drive. A 3-time NCAA champ and Number One draft pick in the WNBA, Holdsclaw seemed destined for a spectacular professional careeruntil her long-suppressed battle with mental illness threatened to derail her life.
Mind/Game intimately chronicles Holdsclaw's athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, and her decisiondespite public stigmato become an outspoken mental health advocate. Still, she would face dramatic, unexpected challenges to her own recovery. The film, narrated by Glenn Close, tells a powerful story of courage, struggle, and redemption.
This film features a post-film Q&A with director Rick Goldsmith.
