The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED

The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED

The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED, Febuary 21st, 7p.m., Argenta Community Theater with special guest Bill Courtney, coach of the Manassas Tigers football team.

Set against the backdrop of a high school football season, Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin’s documentary UNDEFEATED, winner of the Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature, is an intimate chronicle of three underprivileged student-athletes from inner-city Memphis and the volunteer coach trying to help them beat the odds on and off the field.

Founded in 1899, Manassas High School in North Memphis has never seen its football team, the Tigers, win a playoff game. In recent decades, the last-place Tigers had gone so far as to sell its regular season games to rival schools looking to chalk up an easy win.
