This year’s True/False Film Fest has struck gold. Oscar-nominated gold, that is.
Nominated for Best Feature Documentary at the Academy Awards, Undefeated is set to open and close this year’s festival.
A film about one Memphis high school football team with a lot of passion, Undefeated follows the story of Bill Courtney, a lumber salesman who becomes the volunteer football coach for the Manassas High School Tigers in 2004. Courtney uses his knowledge to try and lead the team to what would be the first-ever playoff victory in the school’s 110-year history.
Documenting what True/False calls a “real-life Friday Night Lights” is co-director and 2001 MU graduate, Dan Lindsay. Lindsay will be in attendance at the festival, just in time for all of the FNL fans to quiz him about what makes Courtney better than Eric Taylor. And where is Tim Riggins? Is Memphis better than Texas? You get the idea. Those FNL fans are harsh.
Undefeated will open on March 1 at the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m., and it will close on March 4 at Jesse Auditorium at 6:30 p.m.
