Screening of 'The Fits' (2015) @ James M.  Stewart Theater at the Lewis Center for the Arts

Special Guest: Anna Rose Holmer

THE FITS is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni—a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted.

This screening is in association with Professor Michael Gillespie’s course, Film Blackness. The screening is followed by a conversation with the special guest, and a question and answer portion with the audience. Screenings are free for Princeton students, faculty and staff. (Please note: location is James M.  Stewart Theater at the Lewis Center for the Arts not Princeton Garden Theatre.)
