Believe it or not, Milwaukee’s Brewcity Bruisers celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2016. That’s a full decade of fast-paced, high-octane, and, well, bruising women’s flat track roller derby action. And though the Bruisers have popped up in everything from TV commercials to video games, they have yet to star in their very own documentary. Until now: Roller Life, a feature-length doc on the Brewcity Bruisers, from Appleton-based Hungry Lion Productions, will make its premiere Wednesday, October 19 at the Oriental Theatre. A press release is below:
