We know it has been way too long between updates. We completed the film just over a year ago and have been busy screening at over FIFTY film festivals. We were also able to share the film with the derby community this summer at RollerCon and recently at the 2015 WFTDA World Championships. In the Turn has been featured on VICE, Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and The Guardian. The response to Crystal's story and the derby community has been incredible and we never would have been able to accomplish this amazing success without your support. 

We are thrilled to announce that after a year of touring and pitching the film we have signed with a distributor! This is the ultimate success for a low budget independent documentary like ours. The distributor will now take our film and secure placement on video on demand channels like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon and we will get to print our DVD's! We are finally crossing the finish line after 4 years of hard work and it feels so good!

This means that we are now able to print your DVD's and send you your Soundtracks. Over the next few weeks we will send out another survey to get updated addresses and we will fulfill those final prizes this winter. We thank you so much for your patience and understanding. 

This passion project has been possible because of the derby community coming together and supporting our vision. We cannot wait to finally share the In the Turn with everyone. 

More soon!

      Hi Cindy, We are finishing the final cut for our distribution company now. It is not uncommon for documentaries to take years in the making! We want to make sure that we send out the final edit to our backers so that they get the best possible cut and not the one we toured at festivals. We will def be sending out a survey when the cut is complete and the distribution company has made the DVD's.
