✤ CONCUSSION - NFL, A crash sport. On the gridiron where reality meets expectations. Full force.
Concussion is a biographical sports documentary film. The documentary will feature Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist who fights against the National Football League trying to suppress his research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) brain degeneration suffered by professional football players.
✤ FOOD FOR LIFE - We, as humans, have basic needs for several things. One of them is food. Another is information. We are always, by necessity and want, taking in both.
It’s fair to say we even love both food and information. But we also, as humans, have a propensity for indulging in too much of a good thing to the point that we turn it into a bad thing. It’s easy for us to develop bad habits around any of our basic needs.
This is especially true when indulging provides some kind of instant gratification but long-term damage. I submit that generally, our American habits around food consumption are highly analogous to the habits we have around news and information consumption.
Similarly, the resulting problems we have because of those habits are highly analogous. We love junk food and we love junk news. And they are both wreaking havoc on our individual and collective physical and mental health, and having detrimental effects on our whole society.
✤ TOUCHDOWN - The road to perdition is paved with good intentions.
The documentary has four stories, all of which are about society and sports, famous athletes, or problems afflicting sports. The show also has investigative reports, interviews, and interesting stories that don't necessarily occur in the professional leagues.
This documentary goes beyond traditional sports reporting, like box scores and statistics, and presents exclusive stories that the networks don't usually cover. Real people living a real life.
