In Football We Trust

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.

Directors: Tony Vainuku & Erika Cohn | Producer: Erika Cohn | Executive Producers: Michael D. Ratner, Gavin Dougan, Geralyn White Dreyfous, Mark Lipson | Associate Producer: Carly Nelson
