Over the Limit

Screening Russia's rhythmic gymnastics training program is examined in Marta Prus' revelatory documentary

In the lead-up to the Rio Olympics, elite rhythmic gymnast Rita Mamun’s preparation kicks up a gear.  Her form appears to be in a slight slump and her teammate seems to have emerged as the head coach’s new favourite.

Belying the grace of the sport, Marta Prus’ fly-on-the-wall documentary quietly observes a loveless system pushing athletes to great physical, mental and emotional extremes, seemingly at any cost.

Over the Limit made it’s world premiere at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
