Why this film?
With the United States more and more divided, and the #metoo movement in the daily news, Against Goliath offers a timely story of young students navigating bias and bigotry. In high school debate, there are more male than female debaters, and a disproportionate amount of male debaters who get into the final rounds and win tournaments; debate is an activity in which girls confront one of their first, major glass ceilings. Against Goliath, about the Massachusetts Newton South Public High School Public Forum Debate Team, explores both blatant and nuanced cultural and behavioral factors that contribute to these statistics. As the girls of "Newton South"'s co-ed team tenaciously fight against the odds, they inspire us to not only question their reality, but also create a better, more just future for the next generation.
