Film: Not Just A Game; Power Politics and American Sports

April 27, 2011 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

DVD coverNot Just A Game; People, Politics, and American Sports, the powerful new documentary based on Dave Zirin’s bestselling book A People’s History of Sports, argues that far from providing merely escapist entertainment, American sports have long need at the center of some of major political debates and struggles of our time. The result is as deeply moving as it is exhilarating: nothing less than an alternative history of political struggle in the United States as seen through the games its people have played.

Join us on the week of the NFL draft for a screening of Dave Zirin’s new film, followed by a intimate discussion with Dave.
