'Brutal Beauty: Tales of the Rose City Rollers' is an award-winning video that tells the story of Portland, Oregon’s roller derby team. A film crew spent a year and a half with the team documenting daily events to make this video.

The Rose City Rollers have players with names like Marollin Monroe, Madame Bumpsalot, Blood Clottia, Slambo, Hurricane Skatrina, Caddillac and Glamour Hammer. How can Brutal Beauty go wrong with a cast like that?
