STEP Documentary - Exclusive Screening in Mt. Pleasant, SC

What's happening?

CHARLESTON (MT. PLEASANT), SC: Join Brown Girl Collective's Founder, Marcie L. Thomas, for a special screening of the documentary STEP, which follows the journey of the ladies of the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women’s (BLSYW) step team.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to much acclaim. It won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Inspirational Filmmaking and even found itself in the middle of a studio bidding war, which, as Deadline noted, is rare for a documentary. Fox Searchlight ultimately paid upwards of $4 million for the rights to the movie.

The film focuses on three members of the step team ― Blessin Giraldo, Cori Grainger, and Tayla Solomon ― though it follows the whole team as they get ready for a big competition at Bowie State University while simultaneously preparing their college applications with the help of their new coach, Gari McIntyre (aka “Coach G”) and guidance counselor extraordinaire Paula Dofat.

The three girls at the center of the film are members of the school’s first graduating class, which means the pressure is on to win their step competition and get into college. With her camera, Lipitz captured all the emotions ― stress, excitement, nerves, confusion, anxiety ― these girls experienced as they worked toward their goals, both academic and artistic, leaving viewers to root for them. You want them to win. They have to win. (Read more at https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/step-documentary-amanda-lipitz_us_5984e2b8e4b08b75dcc6f71d.)
