Join us for a free screening of Wrestle, a new documentary by Suzannah Herbert and Lauren Belfer, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers along with New Haven Wrestling head coach Marcello Catapano and Jaylin Houston, 2019 CIAC State Open heavyweight champion.
Wrestle is an intimate, inspring, coming-of-age portrait of the wrestling team at a struggling high school in Huntsville, Alabama. As they fight toward the State Championship, wrestlers Jailen, Jamario, Teague, and Jaquan grapple with injustices on and off the mat, while their coach wades into the complexities of class and race in the modern South.
