'I, Tonya' Breaks the Ice at the 2017 Winter KCET Cinema Series
Following a screening of “I, Tonya” director Craig Gillespie and writer/producer Steven Rogers attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond.
The film tells the story of the well-publicized story of figure skater Tonya Harding whose ex-husband arranged for a man to break the knee of rival skater Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 National Figure Skating Championship. The criminal act cost Harding a national title and banned her from competitive figure skating in the U.S. for life.
