In Theatres: TOP SPIN

1201x782-KEY-IMAGE-top_spin_still_1key-Sara-Newens-copy-400x200Coming to NYC theatres tomorrow, Friday, October 23: TOP SPIN

Sara Newens and Mina T Son’s profile of teen champions made its debut at DOC NYC last year. It has gone on to screen at Big Sky, Salem, CAAMFest, Am Doc, TIFF Kids, Nashville, IFF Boston, LA Asian Pacific, Montclair, and SF Docfest, among others.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In Sara Newens and Mina T Son’s spirited sports film, three driven teenage athletes attempt to go for Olympic gold. Their sport? The perpetually popular but underappreciated game of table tennis. Northern California’s Ariel Hsing and Lily Zhang balance friendship and professional rivalry to see who’ll come out on top, while Long Island’s Michael Landers sacrifices his senior year of high school to devote more time to training at NYC’s SPiN.
