FREE Film Screening Followed by a Q & A

Friday, January 15, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
West Bronx Recreation Center - 1527 Jesup Avenue Bronx, NY 10452
 
Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by the Independent Television Service (ITVS), Independent Lens, and NYC Parks, is excited to offer an advance screening of In Football We Trust, a film by Tony Vainuku and Erika Cohn.

Polynesians are changing high school, college, and professional football. Their sheer physicality, speed, and agility have set new thresholds in athleticism. In Football We Trust chronicles the journey of young Polynesian-American men in Utah, as they transform out of their adolescence, striving to take warrior culture to the next level — through American football. The film follows the genealogy of Polynesian football, the Utah pipeline, and the profound ways their loyalty, rituals, passion, and ferocity have changed the game and the fan base of football.

PANELIST: Trevon Blondet was captain of the Long Island University Post team in college and coached as the varsity defensive coordinator at the Cardinal Hayes High School football team for 6 years. Some of his players will be joining the talk.
