After the success of his 1975 documentary on male bodybuilders, featuring the subsequently famous Arnold Schwarzenegger and Louis Ferrigno, director George Butler created this follow-up on a group of bevy of distaff weight lifters.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
this was incredibly engaging. just got to see it as part of the FNC at cinemateque quebecoise with the director in attendance. he said the film could stand to lose about 25 minutes and i could agree with that. but wow the cinematography was so gorgeous. i loved carla's synchronized swimming scene and the shower scene. i love everyone grappling with what it means to be a woman bodybuilder and discussing it together.
