You are warmly invited to our online Jung and Film evening on Friday 14 August: I, Tonya (2h 1min). This movie is based on the true story of how Tonya Harding ceased to be famous for figure skating and became infamous instead, following an attack on her skating rival, Nancy Kerrigan. A media frenzy erupted, continuing throughout that year’s Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, where both women competed, before the disgraced skater was banned from major competition for good. The movie explores themes of class difference and the discrimination that goes with that, violence towards children and women, and the resilience of the main character in the face of these odds that are stacked against her. Steven Rogers’s screenplay ensures that we never lose sight of her status as a survivor, someone seeking love and adoration in a world full of aggression, who habitually finds herself on the wrong end of a fist.
