Description

FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE – Tucked away in central New York State is the Onondaga Nation, a sovereign Native American community known to produce some of the top lacrosse players in the world. Yet, reluctance of leaving their community, substance abuse, and poverty have kept far too many of these players from venturing off the “Rez” and into collegiate or professional ranks.

A film seven years in the making, THE MEDICINE GAME shares the remarkable journey of two brothers, Hiana and Jeremy Thompson, hoping to break this troubling trend. The boys are driven by a single goal: to beat the odds and play lacrosse for national powerhouse Syracuse University. The obstacles in their way are frequent and daunting, but the brothers’ love for the game and their family’s unyielding determination propel these boys closer to their dream.
