Editorial Reviews

From the award-winning producers of 30 for 30, this exceptional gift set celebrating the 40th anniversary of Title IX features nine documentary films about women in sports , directed by an extraordinarily diverse group of female filmmakers. Executive produced by Jane Rosenthal (co-founder, Tribeca Film Festival) and Robin Roberts (co-anchor, Good Morning America), these critically-acclaimed films highlight Pat Summitt's remarkable story, Venus Williams fight for equal pay and the 1999 US Women's World Cup team, among others. An inspirational collection of remarkable and moving films, Nine for IX is certain to appeal to all independent film fans. 4 Disc Set. Venus VS.: Why was Venus Williams the key catalyst in getting Wimbledon to finally award equal prize money to women players? She was the right player at the right time to lead the charge. Directed by Ava DuVernay. Pat XO: This raw, authentic portrait of legendary basketball coach Pat Summitt takes the camera from the filmmaker's hands and places it into those who know her best. Directed by Lisa Lax/Nancy Stern Winters and Produced by Robin Roberts. Let Them Wear Towels: When a female journalist was sexually harassed by New England Patriots players in 1990, it set off a national debate about women in men's locker rooms. In Let Them Wear Towels, you'll hear stories of raw behavior and remarkable resolve. Directed by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern. No Limits: Through her battle with scoliosis, Audrey Mestre discovered a passion for the ocean that led her to competitive free diving. No Limits looks at the human quest to push beyond our limits, a quest that can sometimes be fatal. Directed by Alison Ellwood. Swoopes: Sheryl Swoopes has struggled with love, family and money, but she has never lost her spirit. In Swoopes, you will meet someone who is not your everyday superstar, but a woman who has defied many labels. Directed by Hannah Storm. The Diplomat: Katarina Witt may have been one of East Germany's most famous athletes at the height of the Cold War, but The Diplomat shows how the figure skater ended up being a beneficiary and victim of the socialist regime. Directed by Jennifer Arnold and Senain Kheshgi. Runner: Mary Decker was supposed to finally have her Olympic moment at the 1984 Games. But that moment turned to heartbreak after a collision with Zola Budd produced one of the most infamous moments in sports history. Directed by Shola Lynch. The '99ers: With candid, behind-the-scenes footage, The '99ers offers a unique look at the U.S. soccer team that changed the face of women's sports, reuniting key players from the squad to examine how the stage has changed since then. Directed by Erin Leyden; Produced by Julie Foudy. Branded: There is a double standard placed on women in sports -- they have to be the best players on the field and the sexiest off of it. Can female athletes ever gain equal footing with their male counterparts? Directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady.

This is an excellent series showcasing SOME of the female sports experience. Venus vs. and The 99ers are my favorites, but they are all great and eye opening.

I wasn't aware of this film set until I searched for other ESPN Films. Packaging is attractive inside and out. The texture of the container feels nice. Photos and descriptions of each film are excellent.

The stories subjects are good and should appeal to various sports enthusiasts. I equate several stories to the Chris Evert and Navratilova 30 for 30 years ago. They touch on being a woman in each sport represented and how views changed simultaneously.
.
I like the use of historical footage in a few films whether it was hi-8 footage or other formats. Provides a sense of time change.

I wish ESPN would have continued this series, as there are so many fascinating women athletes to be profiled. I actually bought this set because it included the one about Katarina Witt. Purchasing just her DVD alone was around $14.95. I bought this set for about $3.00 more and got the whole series of documentaries. So far I've watched the documentaries on Pat Summitt, Sheryl Swoopes, Venus Wiliams and Katarina Witt. All were superb. I am looking to viewing the rest of these excellent films. I highly recommend these to anybody interested in women in sports.
