CHEER UP premiers at Hot Doc! Congratulations!

Cheer Up / FI, CA/ is premiering in May at Hot Docs, Canadian International Documentary Festival which will be held April 28 – May 8, 2016 in Toronto.

Cheer Up by Christy Garland is a story of  Miia, the ambitious coach of Finland’s worst competitive cheerleading team, who is sick of losing and stuck in Rovaniemi, on the Arctic Circle. So she takes a trip to the motherland, Texas, where she’s inspired by the American mindset and focus of the world’s best cheerleaders.  Returning to Finland a tougher coach, she pushes her girls to the breaking point… but is that what the team really wants?  cheer_up_1
