All Skate, Everybody Skate

NEW DOCS

Each day, Miss Doris leaves her house and walks next door to run her post office. As evening falls, she walks upstairs to run her roller-skating rink. Here, she leads games, easily skating among her customers, as she’s been doing for over 50 years. Organized rows of skates line the walls, a record player bellows classic pop hits, and Miss Doris gets on the microphone to lead a round of dance skate elimination. One is immediately at home in this rink tucked into a quaint town on Topsail Island, N.C. As Miss Doris begins sharing personal stories, the images alternate between the magnificent sunsets and storms of the coastal town and lovingly lit scenes of the rink. Mixing in interviews with Miss Doris’s admirers, filmmaker Nicole Triche creates a beautiful sense of place and character, centered on the timeless thrill of circling the rink on roller skates. KR
