The Founders is a screening of the inspirational documentary about the creation of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). In 1950, 13 amateur women golfers battled society, finances and sometimes each other to create the LPGA. With humor and grit these underdogs established a sport legacy during a time when athletic women were not accepted in the country club world of American golf. Through rare archival footage, historical re-enactments, and current-day interviews with the surviving founders, a story of champions is told. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at the 40th Atlanta Film Festival, The Founders isn’t just for those who frequent the golf course. This film is for anyone who believes in the transformative power of defying the odds. Director Charlene Fisk said, “This was a story of heroines. Here were a group of women who came along before Title IX, women who helped to create the bedrock for the women’s movement. Why doesn’t everyone know this?” [2016, USA, Runtime: 85 minutes, NR]
