Feb. 12, 2020: Concordia College’s Sluberski Film Series will present the HBO Sports documentary Student Athlete on Thursday, February 13th, at 7 pm in Sommer Center.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with Robert Romano, Professor of Sports Management at St. John’s University, current Concordia student-athletes Joseph Impeduglia and Sara Calvert, and Jason Francis, Associate Director of Student Success at Concordia and former Concordia student-athlete.

The film examines the complex rules of amateur athletics in America and how these rules effect the unpaid college athletes who generate billions of dollars for their institutions every year.

A production of LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment and Steve Stoute’s United Masters, the feature-length presentation is directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (director of HBO’s Oscar winners Saving Face and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness) and Trish Dalton (Bordering on Treason).
