Shadow & Act | Here’s the first trailer for ESPN Films’ “Nine for IX” – inspired by the 40th anniversary of Title IX (a 1972 education amendment, also known as the Equal Opportunity in Education Act, which states, in part, that… no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance).
ESPN Films will air a series of nine documentaries, under the label starting this summer, highlighting women in sports – all films directed by women filmmakers.
The 9-film series will include “Venus VS“, directed by Ava DuVernay, described as “an in-depth documentary that explores tennis star Venus Williams’ fight for fair pay at Wimbledon.”
