The following images are part of a larger series and a documentary film
which follows the lives of a few talented young women wrestlers.
WINGATE is not just a movie about grit and determination
but a story about self discovery,
redefining gender roles and expectations,
and the transformative support these young athletes gain from the found family of their team.
WINGATE reveals a deep and dimensional humanity.
We see the desire, striving, and rigor it takes for a young wrestler
to build herself into a person who might confront the starkest challenges
with courage and compassion.
We witness a journey of the film’s subjects
propelling themselves and their teammates towards something hopeful and better on the mat and in life.
