Cheer Up

2018 Best Documentary Program

Cheer Up follows the worst cheerleading team in Finland as they struggle to emulate the Americans they idolize – while privately battling heartbreak, loneliness, insecurity and parental loss. For these resilient young women, finding out who they are, where they belong and what family means is much more important than any trophy.
