NewFest 2013 Spotlight: THE RUGBY PLAYER

Documentary Features
(USA, 2013, 90 mins)
New York Premiere
Directed By: Scott Gracheff

On this 12th anniversary of 9/11, we present Scott Gracheff’s documentary, which pays tribute to one of the gay heroes of that day – Mark Bingham. We know the story of BINGHAM’S heroism on flight United 93, and we know about the international Bingham Cup rugby tournament that honors him, but this film introduces us to the man behind the legend. Featuring extensive interviews with Bingham’s mother, friends, family and classmates, the film gives us a richer view of Bingham, from his teen metal-head period to his rambunctious college years through coming out and embracing the world with enthusiasm before his tragic demise.


The director will be present for a Q&A
