Special Sneak Preview Screening
Saturday April 30 at 8 PM
4th & GOAL (2011, 91 min. dir. Nina Gilden Seavey)
4th & GOAL is to football what HOOP DREAMS was to basketball, a longitudinal study of young men on a quest to break into elite professional athletics.
Shot over six years, we first meet Deqawn, Albert, Gibril, Tim, Randy, and Bret at the famed junior college football program at City College in San Francisco. We follow them through the 2003 championship season to the top D1 collegiate teams in the nation and into their encounter with world of professional football and the National Football League.
What their individual fates reveal is as much a prophetic tale of brotherhood, family and the harsh realities of growing up as it is about excelling on 100 yards of turf.
In Person: Producer George Rush and other special NFL guests!
