NOT JUST A GAME: Power, Politics & American Sports

I wrote and produced this film based on Dave Zirin's bestselling book The People's History of Sports in the United States. Zirin takes us on a tour of the good, the bad, and the ugly of American sports culture, tracing how American sports have glamorized militarism, racism, sexism, and homophobia. He then turns to excavate a largely forgotten history of rebel athletes who stood up to power and fought for social justice beyond the field of play.
