He directed 2 of the most reverred documentaries made in the last 20 years (you'll likely find both of them on many lists of top documentaries of all time - 1994's Hoop Dreams and 2011's The Interrupters), and now director Steve James will tackle the "concussion crisis in sports," in his upcoming revealing feature documentary, Head Games.

Produced by Bruce Sheridan, and inspired by the 2006 book by Christopher Nowinski of the same name, in Head Games...
