Both screenings of We Could be King will be followed by a Q&A with the film's editors, David Lieberman and Chris Iversen.
Slashing budgets and still facing shortfalls, Philadelphia did the unthinkable. It shuttered Germantown High School and sent its students to archrival Martin Luther King, leaving a first-time head coach and a new principal to join together in a fight to unite bitter adversaries. An intimate and unflinching snapshot of urban America's education crisis, We Could Be King is a celebration of the power of sports to bring young people, neighborhoods and a city together.
"By addressing the impact of cuts to sports programs - for some students, the main reason they stay enrolled - "King" is an indictment of anyone quick to write off public schools or the children they teach." -- Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
