Over the Limit, Poland-Germany-Finland, 1917, 74 min. Directed and written by: Marta Prus Stars: Yana Kudryavtseva, Margarita Mamun, Irina Viner, Amina Zaripova In Russian, with English subtitles Over the Limit shows how the successful Russian system for training athletes transgresses boundaries.

Obtaining all-areas access to Olympic-competing Russian elite rhythmic gymnast Margarita Mamun, director Marta Prus records in intense detail the verbal and physical pressures to which the young woman is subjected by her fiercely determined coaches. A nail-biting behind-the-scenes drama about the intense physical and mental labor put into a sport that thrives on its beautiful aesthetics.
