Synopsis:
STUNTWOMEN – The Untold Hollywood Story (based on the best-selling book by Mollie Gregory) introduces us to the secret stars who provide the action and thrills that make the best Hollywood movies and television, from the first black-and-white “flickers” to today’s high-tech mega-epics.

These unheralded heroines are the generations of stuntwomen who risked their lives in front of the camera, while behind it they fought for equal rights with male stunt performers, battled sexism and harassment, sustained life-threatening injuries and returned to the fray after each battle.

FAST AND FURIOUS star Michelle Rodriguez narrates the documentary and meets some of the stuntwomen who have doubled for her in numerous action sequences. Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies) guides Michelle and two budding stunt performers through film clips from the early days of cinema when women performed their own stunts. Directors Paul Verhoeven, Paul Fieg and Anne Fletcher and producer Al Ruddy discuss the importance of stunt performers in their films and reveal some tricks of the trade. Nell Scovell (LEAN IN, JUST THE FUNNY PARTS) has written the provocative and insightful narration.
