The Founders

October 15th, 2016 @ 4:00pm | Cinépolis

In 1950, thirteen amateur women golfers battled society, finances and sometimes even each other to create the first and longest running professional sports organization for women. With humor, grit and raw talent, these underdogs not only changed the course of women’s sports, they created a timeless story of redemption and endurance. Through rare archival footage, historical re­enactments and current­ day interviews with leading players and the four surviving founders: Marilynn Smith, Shirley Spork, Louise Suggs and Marlene Bauer Vossler, The Founders tells the story of the women who defied convention for the love of a game that most said had no place for them. This is not your average sports documentary! It is a funny, moving journey that leaves all who see it, athletes and non­athletes alike, inspired and thoroughly entertained.
