Strong! Film Screening presented by Community Cinema.
Cheryl Haworth is an Olympic weightlifter who has competed in three Olympic Games, winning the bronze medal in Sydney in 2000. She held the title of National Champion for 11 consecutive years. Weighing close to 300 pounds, Cheryl uses her size to her competitive advantage in a sport that has traditionally been the province of men. Strong! is the story of Cheryl’s weightlifting career, the rigors of training for competition, and her personal experience of being big in a culture that values women who are small.
Strong! is directed by Julie Wyman, an award-winning filmmaker and a performer, writer, and professor.
