THROUGH THIS LENS
Explore the language of filmmaking with AVFilm Director of Programming Mike Traina in this 5-part film series.
Focus on: Sound Design
(2017, USA, 120 min)
Directed by Craig Gillespie
Director Craig Gillespie takes a darkly comedic approach as he tackles one of the most notorious and sensational scandals in sports history: the ill-conceived and poorly executed attack on Olympic ice skater Nancy Kerrigan. Told through multiple perspectives over a span of twenty years and accompanied by an expertly constructed soundtrack, I, Tonya offers humor, insight, and a great deal of empathy toward Tonya Harding, a working-class sports hero that everyone loves to hate. The film was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Actress for Margot Robbie and Best Supporting Actress for Allison Janney (who won as Harding’s mother).
