United States | 2017 | Peter Spirer, Peter Baxter
Lacrosse originated with the Iroquois, and this new documentary follows the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Team on their historic journey to the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. For the first time ever, the finals were held on Native soil—in Onondaga in upstate New York, the capital of the Iroquois Confederacy. With Jim Brown (a lacrosse great as well as a football great), Bill Belichick, and Al Gore. “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation isn’t a standard sports documentary. Its focus is on spiritual matters as well as the physical.” –Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times. DCP. 102 min.
