atCentral: The Silence of Marshawn Lynch
January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Austin Central Library for a special screening of the 2019 documentary LYNCH: A HISTORY, which explores the silence that nonconformist NFL star Marshawn Lynch deploys as a form of resistance. Culling more than 700 video clips and placing them in dramatic, rapid, and radical juxtaposition, the film is a powerful political parable about the American media-sports complex and its deep complicity with racial oppression.
Writer, producer and director David Shields will join after the screening to discuss the film with Daron Roberts, a former NFL coach and founding director of the Center for Sports Leadership and Innovation at the University of Texas.
