First Trailer for 'Hoop Dreams' Director's Sports Doc 'Head Games'
Back in June we learned the director of Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters was working on getting a new documentary together called Generation Food, a project focusing on the global food system in the 21st century and directly ties into food sovereignty activist Raj Patel's upcoming book of the same. But in the meantime, Steve James is returning to the world of sports again with Head Games, a film that looks at the overlooked effects of head trauma suffered by athletes in a culture that essentially demands that they leave that sort of concern on the field. Looks like yet another truly eye-opening documentary from James. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Steve James' Head Games, found via Thompson on Hollywood:
From acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters) and award-winning producer Bruce Sheridan, Head Games takes a deeper look at the devastating and long-term effects of concussions in all sports. Inspired by events from the book of the same name written by Christopher Nowinski, the film offers eye-opening insight and cutting-edge science on head trauma from the nation’s leading medical experts.The film gets a limited release sometime in September, but you can also request a local screening through Tugg.
