Coming to Epix tonight, Wednesday, June 22: SERENA
Ryan White’s portrait of the tennis champion debuted at Sheffield earlier this month. It will also screen at the upcoming Nantucket Film Festival this weekend.
I previously wrote about the doc for the Nantucket program, saying:
Serena Williams won her first major championship tennis title in 1999, and she hasn’t stopped winning since. Seventeen years later, she has claimed more than 20 Grand Slam titles and four Olympic gold medals. How does the international sports icon, considered by many the greatest tennis player of all time, handle the pressure? In this revealing portrait of perseverance, Ryan White follows Serena as she looks poised to complete a calendar slam by winning four Grand Slams in a single year for the first time since Steffi Graf managed that feat in 1988.
