Movie Info

Lynch: A History- very loosely inspired by the director David Shields's book Black Planet: Facing Race during an NBA Season-documents and celebrates Lynch's attempt to be true to himself in a capitalist, racist society that wants to exploit him and that he wants to both exploit and oppose. Lynch is leaving a legacy of the eloquence of silence, echo, and mimicry as key tools of defiance. Albert Camus says, "The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." No one is absolutely free, but Marshawn Lynch comes thrillingly close.

  • A meticulous patchwork, assembled with intense precision, that feels both literary and cinematic. But it also contextualizes Lynch in a societal framework of sports, media, systemic racism, and the larger changing tide over the course of his life.

  • Presents Lynch's mode of 'removing' himself from the media as an act of defiance against the NFL's exploitation.

  • A very public man who used to run in "Beast Mode" found a way, with much difficulty and resistance, to be silent about it.
