The struggle of an Olympic athlete is well-known and while most would not think that those competitors engaging in competition at table tennis would go through as much as more traditional athletes, this terrific film by co-directors Sara Newens and Mina T. Son proves otherwise. Structured as a traditional sports film building to its end battle – in this case the Summer Olympics – the film captures the struggle that these athletes, many of whom are high school students, face in the quest to reach their goals. As quick-paced and engaging as the game of table tennis itself, this chronicle of two girls and one boy intent on battling the world’s best as severe underdogs brings new understanding to a beloved sport, and those who play it. IN ATTENDANCE: Co-director Sara Newens as well as several of the world’s top table tennis players.
