SKATING POLLY: UGLY POP
Friday, November 12
(2021, USA 109 min, DCP) dir Henry Mortensen. Peyton Bighorse and Kelli Mayo are step-sisters from Oklahoma who founded their band, Skating polly at the ages of 14 and 9, respectively. They call their style of music, “Ugly Pop”: infectious melodies, but with real-life blemishes still showing. This film is a documentary exploring the early years of Skating Polly. Peyton and Kelli get their first tastes of success, and try to stay true to themselves and their love of music. We see the sisters grow as people and musicians and hear from fellow artists (including Lori Barbero and Babes in Toyland) about how they became the band they are today. Their earnestness throughout is refreshing and inspiring.
