We Could Be King

Director: Judd Ehrlich
Year: 2014
Running Time: 80 minutes

Synopsis
Slashing budgets and still facing shortfalls, Philadelphia did the unthinkable. It shuttered Germantown High School and sent its students to archrival Martin Luther King, leaving a first-time head coach and a new principal to join together in a fight to unite bitter adversaries. An intimate and unflinching snapshot of urban America’s education crisis, We Could Be King is a celebration of the power of sports to bring young people, neighborhoods and a city together.
