At the Heart of Gold (Film and Discussion)

Setup

For more than two decades, Dr. Larry Nassar was the physician for the US women’s Olympic gymnastics team – and a serial sexual abuser who chalked up hundreds of victims. Director Erin Lee Carr’s powerful documentary, with its brave testimonials from athletes at the center of the story, reveals a dangerous system that prioritizes winning above all. Based on years of research and interviews with dozens of survivors, coaches, lawyers, and journalists, the film exposes the competitive environment in which world-class female athletes pursue victory, juxtaposed against a culture of hidden and life-damaging abuse. Two of the gymnasts featured in the film, and its producers, join a panel discussion following the screening.
