LHAAFF: Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story (Film Short Followed By Feature Film)
He's A Fighter, USA, 2014, 7 min (World Premiere)

Antoine 'Action' Douglas was born to a drug addicted mother in Southeast D.C. He has lived with various friends, relatives and foster families. His life changed drastically upon his introduction to boxing - graduating top of his class in high school and going on to the Olympic Trials. This story predicts his inevitable rise to boxing stardom. Suitable for a general audience.

Undefeated: The Roger Brown Story, USA, 2013, 71 min (World Premiere)

A gambling scandal -- one he had no part of -- shatters New York's brightest young basketball star. Kicked out of college, banned by the NBA, he spends the next six years working the nightshift in a Dayton, Ohio, GM plant before the Indiana Pacers of the rogue ABA make him their first player. He becomes a star, a three-time champ, a City Councilman, a civic icon. But he dies too young, stricken by cancer, tormented to the end by what-could-have-been laments. A once-magical name fades into obscurity -- until now. In September, Roger Brown will be belatedly enshrined in the Naismith Hall of Fame. See the film that helped make that happen. Stars include Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, Bill Cosby, Julius Erving, Bob Costas, and more. Suitable for a general audience.
