From the proverbial wrong side of the tracks in Portland, Oregon, former competitive figure skater Tonya Harding was never fully accepted in the figure skating community for not inherently being the image of grace, breeding and privilege that the community wanted to portray, despite being naturally gifted in the sport athletically.
Despite ultimately garnering some success in figure skating being national champion, a world champion, an Olympian and being the first American woman to complete a Triple Axel in competition, she is arguably best known for her association to “the incident”: the leg bashing on January 6, 1994 of her competitor, Nancy Kerrigan, who, unlike Tonya, was everything that the figure skating community wanted in their representatives. Her association to that incident led to Tonya being banned from competitive figure skating for life.
Tonya’s story from the beginning of her figure skating life at age four to the aftermath of the incident is presented in this film.

Doors open 30 min. before screenings for Front Row and Sunday cinema.
