    About

    Join us for a special screening of the 2019 documentary LYNCH: A HISTORY, which explores the silence that nonconformist NFL star Marshawn Lynch deploys as a form of resistance. Culling more than 700 video clips and placing them in dramatic, rapid, and radical juxtaposition, the film is a powerful political parable about the American media-sports complex and its deep complicity with racial oppression.

    Writer / producer / director David Shields will join us after the screening to discuss the film with Daron Roberts, a former NFL coach and founding director of the Center for Sports Leadership and Innovation at the University of Texas.

    "David Shields's portrait of Marshawn Lynch is a groundbreaking documentary about a silence that isnt really a silence," writes Claudia Rankine, author of Citizen.
