From the acclaimed director Steve James (Academy Award-nominated "Hoop Dreams"), "Head Games: The Global Concussion Crisis" is a revealing documentary featuring never-before-seen neurological findings related to rugby and soccer players that will serve as a wake-up call for those who think that the devastating chronic effects of repetitive head trauma are only an American football and boxing injury. 

Inspired by events from the book "Head Games," written by former Ivy League Football Player and WWE Wrestler Christopher Nowinski, "Head Games: The Global Concussion Crisis" will capture the attention of a worldwide audience and expose a problem that has undeniably become a silent epidemic on a global scale. Internationally respected medical experts, professional and amateur athletes and their families will offer eye-opening insights and cutting edge science on head trauma that will demand that the perception of concussion change to guarantee the health and safety of athletes as a top priority.
