Fathers of Football

DirectorBradley Beesley – local Austin director!

After two state championships and a 25 game winning streak, the Wagoner High School Bulldogs are going for a third consecutive title under the leadership of their coach, Dale Condict. “Coach” is more than just your typical guy shouting out plays and holding a clipboard; he’s a mentor and confidant to the young men on his team. His s own son and the team’s starting guard is recovering from testicular cancer and trying to make a comeback on the field. In a small town where high school football is not only the brightest stage, but also the best ticket out, Coach must help his players survive the year and avoid the same pitfalls as previous generations.

Fullsterkur

Director: Todd Sansom

Nestled at the doorstep of the Arctic Circle, the country of Iceland is uniquely acquainted with the relationship between strength and survival. For hundreds of years, men and women were challenged to overcome harsh weather and endless winter nights by developing their own distinct physical and mental fortitude—passed down from the age of the Vikings, and iconically represented by the lifting of heavy stones. Produced by Rogue Fitness, Fullsterkur features some of the modern stars of Iceland strength, including Magnus Ver Magnusson, Hafthor Bjornsson, and Annie Thorisdottir. But it also sheds light on strength culture’s early roots in the region, from the traditions of the Vikings and Sagas to the lives of farmers and fishermen.
