Titles at Twilight - Mike Castronis


In "A Football Story", Castronis chronicles the story about a high school football in the rural south in the late 1960s. In a time when the school system should have begun the process of desegregation, the old “separate but equal” system prevailed. It is a fictional story of possibilities, when a football crazy town begins to understand what might happen to their team if African Americans were able to play. The motives might be questionable but the results are heartwarming. In the end it becomes one boy's attempt to make his town and his team better.
