Keepers of the Game is the new film from Emmy-winning filmmaker, Judd Ehrlich. Known for the award winning, We Could Be King, Ehrlich has again made a compelling documentary that will engage the country. Highlighting the ability of sports to inspire and transform students, Keepers of the Game should be shown in every school and in every community.


Synopsis: Born in Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, lacrosse began as a sacred game, traditionally reserved for men. Just off the reservation at Salmon River High in Fort Covington, NY, an all-Native girls lacrosse team comes together, seeking to be the first Native women’s team to bring home a Section Championship. But first, they will have to overcome their crosstown rivals, Massena High. As the season comes to a head, the team is faced with increasing ambivalence in their own community and the girls must prove that the game of lacrosse is their rightful inheritance. With more than just the championship on the line, the girls fight to blaze a new path for the next generation of Native women, while still honoring their people’s tradition in a changing world.

Impact: Keepers of the Game aims to raise awareness around the importance of sports for childhood development and the impact of budget cuts on access to youth sports around the country. Through strategic partnerships and screening events, Keepers of the Game will become a powerful tool and platform for coaches, parents, and players, seeking to raise funds for their respective sports programs and teams.
