About the Film

Celebrate Utah Film Center’s 18th anniversary with a screening of the Emmy award-winning, Utah Film Center Fiscally Sponsored, locally made film In Football We Trust at a special price, $18 per vehicle.

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 four-year time period, the film intimately portrays four young Polynesian men striving to overcome gang violence and near poverty through the promise of American football.

Directed by local filmmakers Tony Vainuku and Erika Cohn, In Football We Trust takes us into the lives of these high school athletes and their families:
