undefeated

Here's the first official trailer for the now Academy Award nominated (for documentary feature) film Undefeated - the football documentary directed by Daniel Lindsay and T.J. Matin about a single defining season of the Memphis Manassas Tigers high school football team; a severely underfunded and underprivileged program attempting a winning season after years of losses, whose fortunes reverse thanks to an immensely-devoted coach named Bill Courtney.

The film received critical acclaim at its SXSW debut in March 2011, and was quickly snatched up by The Weinstein Company for distribution and remake rights. No word on the remake, but you can watch the original doc when it opens in theaters in limited release across the country on February 12.
