Beirut's Queens of Roller Derby

This short film follows the women who’ve brought the sport to Lebanon.

Hadeel Al-Hubaishi goes by the nickname “Tiny Shiny,” and she’s a member of the American University of Beirut’s roller derby team. It’s a nascent sport by Middle East standards, but its growing support is a testament to the infectious fun of roller derby. This short film profiling Al-Hubaishi and AUB’s team was directed by Isabel Freeman and Andrea Kurland for Huck Magazine.
