Mark Bingham: An athlete. A son. A hero.

Winner of many festival awards, The Rugby Player epitomizes uplifting and inspiring cinema. Explore the life of Mark Bingham, one of the passengers on United Flight 93 on 9/11. A rugby player, Cal Berkley alum, a gay man, and myriad other admirable traits, Bingham was a man many wished to emulate. A complex weaving of a variety of stories and utilizing footage shot by Bingham himself, The Rugby Player shatters stereotypes and provides insight into a family raised by a single mom, the importance of community, LGBT rights, and gay athletes in sports. Emmy award-winning director Scott Gracheff brings to life a portrait of how a son’s heroism can inspire a nation, and how a mother’s love can turn unfathomable loss into unshakable resolve.
