Movie Discussion Group: Athlete A
Join WIN for our next movie discussion about Athlete A, a documentary directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk that follows a team of journalists from the Indianapolis Star throughout their investigation of Larry Nassar and abuse at USA Gymnastics. The Star broke the story that Nassar had assaulted young gymnasts, some of whom were prominent Olympians and Olympic hopefuls. The documentary is available on Netflix and was released in June 2020. This conversation will be facilitated by Marissa Ditkowsky, WIN’s Programs Director and an attorney who has written about this case, primarily in the context of non-disclosure agreements and the harm they cause for survivors. We look forward to this important dialogue about a system that enabled abuse and failed to hold powerful individuals accountable. Don’t forget to watch Athlete A in advance.
If you require accommodations or have questions, please email Marissa Ditkowsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
