CHAMPS (Documentary)



CHAMPS challenges the perception of the American Dream through the life trajectories of Evander Holyfield, Bernard Hopkins and Mike Tyson. From success to self-discovery, these men recount their battles while illuminating our country’s most critical social issues, including poverty, racial inequality, broken homes, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and the failures of our educational and prison systems. CHAMPS unearths the unique resilience of these men and highlights how our society and their industry exalts their fleeting success, but leaves them without the skills or protections that they need to succeed outside of the ring. We call them “champs” in sport, but cannot help but ask whether they can truly be champions in life.

Key Cast Includes: Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Bernard Hopkins, Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Mary J. Blige, and 50 Cent.
