Raquel Welch in person for a post-screening Q&A!

Raquel is “the hottest thing on wheels” as roller derby champ K.C. Carr, fighting to hold her own in the sport’s cutthroat world of fierce rivals and treacherous team politics. K.C.’s story of balancing personal and professional life involved bone-crunching realism—even months of skating practice couldn’t save Raquel from a broken wrist. Spearheaded and co-produced by the star, the film features derby pros such as Judy Arnold of the Philadelphia Warriors, and John Hall and Danny “Carrot Top” Reilly from the L.A. Thunderbirds.
