Watch the trailer for the Academy Award nominated football documentary ‘Undefeated’
The documentary Undefeated (not to be confused with the documentary about Sarah Palin) recently picked up one of 16 Oscar nominations for Harvey Weinstein’s company this year. The inspirational doc follows the inner city high school football team the Manassas High School Tiger’s 2009 season, as they attempt to win their first playoff game in the 110-year history of the school. The team is so terrible that apparently they are used as warm up matches against much better teams. Much like Steve James’ great doc Hoop Dreams, the final product is said to be cut down from over 500 hours of footage, only it follows three players (instead of two): left tackle O.C. Brown, lineman Montrail “Money” Brown and linebacker Chavis Daniels. Here is the trailer.
