Film phase: Completed
Kick Like A Girl is the story of what happens when The Mighty Cheetahs, an undefeated third grade girls soccer team competes in the boys division. With humor and honesty this documentary reveals the reality of the boy-girl issues and what kicking “like a girl” really means on and off the playing field. The film is narrated by 8-year-old Lizzie, a self described soccer girl, who doesn’t let juvenile diabetes, elbow blocks, or grass stains interfere with her desire to compete. Refreshing and triumphant, Kick Like A Girl reminds us all of the lessons learned in competitive athletics and how sports has been one of the most effective instruments of social change in our lifetime.
