WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The winner of the 2011 Academy Award for best documentary "Undefeated," was on the big screen at CFCC Schwartz Center Thursday night.
"Undefeated" chronicles the struggles of the Manassas Tigers of Memphis, as they attempt a winning season after years of losing.
It is a football film with a message, one that was not lost on young fans we spoke with.
“The movie is about my favorite sport and that's why it's interesting,” fan Jahlil Hardy said. “It’s all about having fun and don't give up and follow your heart.”
The movie was sponsored by the Wilmington Police department, Cape Fear Community College and WWAY NewsChannel 3, to encourage mentoring.
