Lynch: A History 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 be on hand 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.
