Emerge Microcinema Screening: 'Burn the Ships'

October 13, 2017 7PM to 9PM

While all eyes have been on Progressive Field, another Northeast Ohio team also spent their summer swinging for the fences. Emerge Microcinema will screen Burn the Ships on Friday, October 13, 2017 at 7pm at Forest City Brewery (2135 Columbus Road, Cleveland, Ohio). The Think Media Studio documentary directed by Julia Thorndike and Danielle Miller turns its lens on women’s professional softball through the story of one special Northeast Ohio team. Whether faced by an opposing team or the threat of early retirement, Burn the Ships shows the Akron Racers’ commitment to the league and willingness to sacrifice for the sport they love. “The thing that drew us to tell this story was meeting [Racers general manager] Joey Arrietta,” says Thorndike. “She lives her life for this game. It matters so much to her, it started to matter to us.”

Launched in 2017, Emerge Microcinema seeks to connect the community to independent cinema through intimate popup screenings in stores, bike garages, breweries and loft spaces. “Burn the Ships is getting national attention, but Emerge Microcinema can provide an up-and-coming filmmaker with another outlet beyond the festival circuit,” says Emerge co-founder Jeff Babinski. “These events also offer inspired audiences the opportunity to meet the filmmakers and ask them questions about the subject or process directly.”

Burn the Ships earned Thorndike and Miller the Reel Women Direct Award for Excellence in directing by a woman at the 2017 Cleveland International Film Festival. So, as recognition for the female-focused feature-length film continues to grow, what’s next for the duo? “We’re both interested in using this medium to try to contribute something positive to the world, whether that means keeping people informed, inspired, or asking some tough questions that may hopefully prompt a little bit of introspection,” says Miller.

Tickets are $10 per person in advance and $12 at the door. Advance tickets are recommended. For more information, visit
