THURSDAY 10/28, 4:00 PM (SESSION 16)

Director/Producer: Rick Goldsmith

Description:

From the rough-edged courts of Astoria, Queens, Chamique Holdsclaw became a 3-time NCAA champ and the No. 1 draft pick in the WNBA, impressing crowds with her artistry, athleticism and drive.  The “female Michael Jordan” seemed destined for a spectacular professional career—until a long-suppressed battle with mental demons threatened everything. Mind/Game chronicles Holdsclaw’s athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, including her decision, despite public stigma, to speak out about her mental illness.  Even then, she would experience a roller-coaster ride and unexpected challenges to her own recovery, in this powerful story of courage, struggle and redemption.
