Presented by Indie Lens Pop Up and WNET.  Join us for a preview screening of In Football We Trust by Tony Vainuku and Erika Cohn before it airs on PBS on January 25th. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Victor Dugue, Coach of 10U Division, Rockaway Ravens.

In Football We Trust intimately follows four Polynesian high school football players in Utah struggling to overcome gang violence, family pressures, and poverty as they enter the high stakes world of college recruiting and the promise of pro sports. The odds may be stacked against them, but they’ll never stop fighting for a better future.

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on the PBS series Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders, and organizations to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics to family and relationships. Make friends, share stories, and join the conversation. Can't attend in person? Visit Independent Lens on Facebook for information on online Pop-Up events.
