Library to screen documentary about wrestling, race and class

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Bud Werner Memorial Library’s Indie Lens Pop-Up season concludes with a free screening of “Wrestle” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, in Library Hall.

“Hoop Dreams” goes to the mat in this intimate, coming-of-age documentary by Suzannah Herbert and Lauren Belfer about four members of a high school wrestling team. “Wrestle” is an intimate portrait of the wrestling team at Huntsville’s J.O. Johnson High School, which has been on Alabama’s failing schools list for many years. As they fight their way toward the state championship, each wrestler faces injustices and challenges on and off the mat, together grappling with obstacles that jeopardize their success while their coach wades into the complexities of class and race in the South.
