FILM SYNOPSIS

IN FOOTBALL WE TRUST is an insightful and moving documentary feature film exploring in rich detail the remarkable story behind the Polynesian Pipeline to the NFL.

A contemporary American story, the film transports viewers deep inside the tightly-knit and complex Polynesian community in Salt Lake City, Utah, one of the chief sources for the modern influx of Pacific Islander NFLers. With unprecedented access and shot over a fouryear time period, the film intimately portrays four young Polynesian men striving to overcome gang violence and near poverty through the promise of American football.

After the film we will have a short discussion and presentation with Martin Rollins from the Asia Institute Crane House and Charles Gwinn from the Ali Center on the context of the film, the historical relationship the United States has with Polynesian countries, and social justice issues raised.
