Mabel Mabel Tiger Trainer Film Screening

Mabel Stark was a superstar in the steel arena. She was the world’s first female tiger trainer. Told no WOMAN could train tigers, undaunted, with no training she stepped into the steel arena and worked up an act that included up to 20 tigers. The film uncovers the real story behind the most famous woman of her time as told in her words, from her relatives, her protégés, and today’s female tiger trainers who follow in her footsteps.
