Gore Vidal : the United States of amnesia by Gore Vidal( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an unashamedly opinionated film. In Gore Vidal's America, the political coup has already happened. The right have triumphed and the human values of the liberals have been consigned to history. But how did this happen and who organized it?

'In Football We Trust' captures a snapshot in time amid the rise of the Pacific Islander presence in the NFL. Polynesians are changing high school, college, and professional football. To understand this phenomenon, one must appreciate the individuals and cultures behind the headlines, their unique diaspora to the United States and the role of the Mormon Church in facilitating their immigration. Providing an innovative take on a new immigrant story, 'In Football We Trust' transports viewers deep inside the tightly-knit Polynesian community in Salt Lake City, Utah. With unprecedented access and shot over a four-year time period, this feature length documentary intimately portrays four young Polynesian men striving to overcome gang violence and near poverty through American football.
