From acclaimed director Steve James, Head Games is a revealing documentary about the silent concussion crisis in American sports. Athletes from the professional to the youth levels share their personal struggles in dealing with the devastating and long-term effects of concussions, an epidemic fueled by the 'leave everything on the field' culture so prominent in American sport. Inspired by events from the book 'Head Games' written by former Ivy League Football Player and WWE Wrestler Christopher Nowinski, the film contrasts eye-opening evidence and cutting-edge science on head trauma from the nation's leading medical experts with first-hand accounts from the athletes, coaches, and parents who must tread the difficult balance between sports excellence and basic self-preservation. -- (C) Variance

Thrown out of her New York City apartment, Natalia, a 25-year-old hot mess, relies on the kindness of friends and strangers. Seemingly unaware of the havoc she wreaks, she skips from one place to another, including her best friend's, where she crashes a holiday meal and seduces the best friend's socially inept brother. Natalia ends up staying at a shelter run by genuinely good Maury, who takes an interest in making her life better -- but life is not that simple, and tragedy ensues. With a menagerie of New York characters, set against the backdrop of a homeless shelter, a religious household, and the cacophonous streets of New York, SOFT IN THE HEAD is a look at how easy it is to lose one's head in the big city, particularly for those already lost.

New York City. Fall, 1995. Below the feet of Times Square tourists, down a long flight of stairs, is a world where topless dancers spin around poles and grind money out of the pockets of nameless faces. For most, it's a fantasy. For some, it's therapy. For a few, a confessional. But beyond the Main Stage, and behind the Men's Room door you'll find a different kind of performance going on - a grifter with more talent and charisma than most of the dancers. Meet Shoes, the bathroom attendant. He's been here three years. Will he stay, or will he go? All he knows, for now, is that as the masses enter, he has one objective - get whatever cash they're holding into his tip bowl. No easy task. And whether they leave money or not, one thing's for sure - they are no longer nameless, and whatever secrets they are trying to hide, are exposed in the bright light of the head.(c) Official Facebook

Out of the ashes of the Twin Towers emerged a group of survivors. They had all been to the margins of death and back again, but one survivor in particular stood out among them all: Tania Head. Tania's miraculous story of crawling through carnage on the 78th floor of the South Tower is one of true courage and a remarkable will to survive. Her story quickly traveled through the survivor community and, in 2004, she became president of the World Trade Center Survivors' Network, tirelessly fighting to give the survivors support and prominence in a post-9/11 landscape. But there was one problem with Tania's story: Tania Head was never in the Twin Towers of September 11, 2001 and not a single detail of her epic tale of suffering was true. -- (C) Meredith Vieira Productions

Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words "God Is Dead" on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that "God Is Dead," he must prove God's existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God's existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn't it just be easier just to write "God Is Dead" and put the whole incident behind him? GOD'S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions. --(C) Official Site
