If you’ve attended a women’s roller derby bout in the sport’s post-modern incarnation, you’ve seen it:  the love, the pure addiction that drives tens of thousands of women around the globe (estimated to be over 20,000 in the US alone) to don fishnets, stage names and roller skates.  It’s taking hold of busy women and their daughters everywhere – literally everywhere…..even in St. Cloud, MN!

For the first time ever, the story of women’s roller derby is covered from both a national and international perspective, as Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Robin Bond and Dave Wruck take you with them on their international quest to learn why women’s flat track roller derby is the fastest growing sport in the world.  Derby, Baby! explores the drama, the friendships, and the addictive nature of women’s flat-track roller derby, with a message of empowerment and sisterhood.


DB trailer logo“Derby, Baby!” is a love story about a sport and a movement.  Narrated by actress Juliette Lewis, “Derby, Baby!” is a documentary filmed over a two-year period, that captures the love and addiction that connects women from very different walks of life.  These skaters are mothers, college students, teachers, graphic designers, nurses and more, organized into leagues and growing the sport from it’s WWF-like legacy into something that is athletic, competitive and fiercely empowering.
