Just in case you haven't heard by now, and just in case you're not from Harrisburg and you've perhaps lived under a rock that blocked out the light shining from the Hershey's Giant Center just a few years ago as Central Dauphin High schools wrestling team grappled their way toward a state title, now is your chance to see Takedowns and Falls. http://takedownsandfalls-blog.com/

Being billed as Spellbound meets Friday Night Lights, Takedowns and Falls Chronicles the athletic journey of a group of Pennsylvania teens and their quest to obtain a state wrestling championship.

 An in-depth look at the lives of dedicated student athletes and families and their commitment to one of Central Pennsylvania's premiere wrestling programs, the documentary has been well-received by audiences across the state as well as nationally. Directed by  Todd Hickey  www.imdb.com/title/tt1020904/  and Co-directed by Kirk Ledger, the highly acclaimed documentary  examines the world of high school wrestling and its effects on family and community. After a considerable amount of praise for its ability to reveal a group of wrestlers overcoming insurmountable odds all with maintaining humility, Takedowns and Falls is now set for national release, with a stop at The Cinema Center of Camp Hill, PA. http://www.cinemacenter.com
