THE MINISTER OF DEFENSE
WORLD PREMIERE NFL Hall of Famer Reggie White was known as much for his dogmatic religiosity as for his devastating sacks at the time of his tragic death in 2004 at 43. However, during a little-known interview shortly before his passing, White questioned his indoctrination and revealed his journey to discover the meaning of his faith. Including intimate interviews with his son, Jeremy, the superstar defensive lineman’s story deftly explores the cultural complexity of evangelical Christianity. – Brandon Harrison
