Actor Mariska Hargitay, who famously played New York Police Department Captain ‘Olivia Benson‘ in ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,’ recommended her fans & followers to watch ESPN’s special, ‘Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible,’ through her verified Instagram account.
By posting the official poster for the documentary film, which focuses on the young women fighters in a state where dozens of women were missing or murdered, Hargitay wrote on Instagram:
“No scorecards, no trophies. The prize? Survival. Watch this knockout of a film “Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible” about the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women on reservations across the country.”
Then the founder of Joyful Heart Foundation, the non-profit organization providing support for people who have been abused, thanked the directors of the documentary, Kristen Lappas and Tom Rinaldi for “shedding light.”
The actor also announced that the film, centered on a group of Native American women who are learning boxing to defend themselves from domestic and sexual abuse, is now streaming on ESPN.
As known, the 29-minute-long documentary had its TV premiere on June 30, and it received the Audience Award for Best Short at AFI Docs shortly after its release.
