Wildcard Distribution has released the trailer for Laura McGann’s Irish roller-derby documentary Revolutions, which will be released in cinemas from June 30th.

Produced by Ross Whitaker for True Films (SavioursWhen Ali Came to IrelandUnbreakable), Revolutions was four years in the making, and sees McGann chronicle the Irish roller derby community throughout the Island to create an intimate portrayal of this female driven sport during hard economic times.

Ireland’s recession pushes young people out. Surplus to requirement in the world beyond the Roller Derby track, the fast paced & aggressive derby world becomes a haven for determined, pissed-off women in a crippled country. Young Irish women go on a high-octane Roller Derby odyssey in search of a means for self-expression, a fight to be fought & above all a team that needs them. But how will responsibility & power affect the new leaders? With total access over 4 years, starting with the first ever-Irish team as they prepare for the World Cup in 2011, Revolutions follows this exciting sports arc, capturing the story as it unfolds, fascinating rivalries and observing real character development.

The Irish Film Institute will host a special opening night screening (with Q&A) on Friday 30th June at 6.15pm while the Triskel Christchurch in Cork will kick off their release of the film with a special screening (with Q&A) on Sunday 2nd July.
