HARVARD BEATS YALE 29-29
HARVARD BEATS YALE 29-29

$9 Members / $12 Public
Includes Reception

In Person: Filmmaker Kevin Rafferty

In 1968, the world was a wild place. America was at war in Vietnam, and new ideas
were flying around like bullets. In the midst of this, two undefeated Ivy League football teams faced off in a remarkable, historic game. To those of us who are not sports enthusiasts, this story may seem insignificant. However, the Harvard Beats Yale 29-29 would make anyone appreciate this momentous match. Director Kevin Rafferty (The Atomic Caf) was an eyewitness. For him and the aging athletes interviewed in the film (which includes Tommy Lee Jones) this event is a special part of their youth. But what makes the story so compelling is its context. Rafferty sticks to a simple narrative that consists of interviews and archival footage. This easy combination produces both insightful commentary on the game itself and the turbulent times. Another appealing aspect of Harvard is its climatic conclusion. Although the title sounds like a spoiler, the games seemingly impossible but true ending situates the viewer in a state of uncertainty at a moment when seconds seem to span an eternity. -Matthew Garklavs

USA, 2008, 105 mins.
