Utah Film Center Education

Jenny Mackenzie's Kick Like a Girl

Local filmmaker and recent guest speaker Jenny Mackenzie stopped by the Utah Film Center to drop off copies of her documentary Kick Like a Girl–a gift to teachers in our SHIFT Through My Lens workshop who learn how to best integrate documentary film into their classrooms. 

The story is about The Mighty Cheetahs, an undefeated third grade girls soccer team who competes in the boys' division. This honest and humorous crowdpleaser tells a larger story about the reality of gender stereotypes and what "Kick Like a Girl" means on and off the soccer field.
