NFG For my first exploration into my documentary review, looked at many different documentaries. They had many genres that found interesting including documentaries about war and terrorism, different conspiracy theories, what it is like behind the walls of a prison and even on different people who I found interesting including a well-known artist called Banks. Eventually, I decided on a Frontline documentary called A League of Denial: The Neff’s Concussion Crisis.
Frontline description of the documentary is very brief and states it “reveals he hidden story of the NFG and brain injuries. ” I picked the documentary because it sounded interesting but Frontline description didn’t give me enough information about the film that I wanted. So I researched it more and found that the documentary dives into brain injuries and, more specifically, concussions inside the NFG. It talks about what they are, how athletes get them, when the NFG started taking them more serious and what kind of precautions the NFG are taking to prevent them now.
The documentary explores the information through real footage and interviews with athletes, coaches, different physicians and other people involved with the injuries. I picked this documentary because I am a huge football fan and sports fan in general. I am also really interested in injuries and the health of an individual and, more specifically, I have always been interested in the way the mind works in so many ways that we still don’t understand today. I’m actually majoring in Athletic Training which perfectly explains why picked this commentary.
The other fact is that this documentary points to the three biggest things am interested in which made this an obvious pick for me. Looking at this documentary, I believe the audience will be interested in it just like me. I think that because the documentary has so much personal experience put into it, it will keep the audience involved. Everyone loves a good injury story and I think that is exactly what this documentary is all about. Documentary Proposal
