Mariska Hargitay is nothing if not dedicated. We’re told that after a 14-hour workday on the set of “Law & Order: SVU,” she found time to give a stirring introduction for a prize-winning documentary.

Hartigay taped a virtual intro for ESPN’s “Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible,” about a young girl’s disappearance from a reservation in Montana and a boxing club founded to help protect other women there.

She said, “The saying is common on reservations across America: a Native American woman who disappears goes missing twice; first when her body vanishes, then when her story does. This is a film about fighting — for respect, identity and acknowledgment.”

“There are no scorecards or knockouts on the reservation. The prize at the Blackfeet Boxing Club is far more vital: survival.”

Following a Cinema Society virtual screening, Sharice Davids, one of the first two Native American women to serve in Congress, joined the film’s co-directors Kristen Lappas and Tom Rinaldi for a panel.

Among those KO’d by the film were Bette Midler, Hilary Swank, Edie Falco, Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka, Brooke Shields, Padma Lakshmi, Trudie Styler, Christy Turlington, Ali Wentworth, Darren Star and Bruce Weber.
