Into the Scrum, a dynamic and innovative short documentary that, following a team of female rugby players for a year, offers an intimate portrait of an unforgettable collection of young women as they explore newfound, often provocative, roles and rituals of power, aggression, and sexual identity – as they test themselves, both on and off the field, by moving into the “scrum”. Shot in first-person perspective on 16mm film and DVCAM, deploying a body-cam and making use of radiant hand-painted animation, the film renders rugby’s fierce physical poetry as it reveals the physical, emotional, and psychological contours of these remarkably thoughtful and adventurous young women’s personal and shared paths to adulthood.
