Each year, RadioWest sits down for in-depth conversations with filmmakers and producers during the Sundance Film Festival. Just like the festival, the RadioWest team has eclectic taste. We hope you enjoy the diversity of topics as much as we do.

Sundance 2015: In Football We Trust

Monday, we're live from the Park City Museum on Main Street. Our guests are Utah filmmakers Tony Vainuku and Erika Cohn, whose film In Football We Trust is part of Sundance Film Festival. It’s the story of four Polynesian, high school football players focused on one goal: professional recruitment. Football is seen as the golden ticket, an escape from poverty, drugs and violence. But of course, few will get a coveted NFL jersey. We'll talk about the passion for the game and the pressure to succeed.

There is limited seating for this live broadcast on Monday, January 26. We're at “The Living Room,” presented by the Utah Film Commission. It’s at the Park City Museum at 528 Main St. from 11:00 a.m. to Noon. Plan to be in your seats by 10:45 a.m. Seats are available on a first come basis.
