Michael’s second film Roller Life is about the Brew City Bruisers, a flat track roller derby league that belongs to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, for a full season. The film follows around eight roller derby athletes and captures the essence of their lives both on and off the track. The documentary looks into misconceptions of the sport and covers the full action of the roller derby season.
