Life In Synchro
Directed by Angela Pinaglia
USA / 2020 / 53 mins
Break the ice. Shatter a ceiling. Change the world.
Synchronized skaters do it all — together. Synchronized ice skating can be a cold and unforgiving world, but to the women and girls who find family here, it’s home. Journey alongside skaters, both amateurs and professionals, as they push their teams and themselves beyond the routine and up towards greatness. They’re chasing Olympic dreams not just for themselves, but for their beloved yet largely overlooked sport. Together these skaters are out to prove the staying power of synchro.
Director Angela Pinaglia is a Baltimore-based queer Latina educator and filmmaker. Life in Synchro is her first feature film. She works as a freelance producer and cinematographer, and has taught video production and media classes at Kutztown University and American University. Angela earned her MFA in Film and Electronic Media from American University.
