Frightening Video Shows Every Concussion During 2017-18 NFL Season

The 2017-2018 season is almost finished, and we’ve got a video that may shock you.

There have been 281 documented concussions this season and we have a video that shows every single one.

The video was directed by Josh Begley and produced by Laura Poitras.

Here’s what Begley wrote:

“This film does not make an argument for ending football. Rather, it invites a set of questions. In the spirit of Saidiya Hartman, I am interested in “defamiliarizing the familiar.”

When we watch American football, what are we seeing?

By cutting together only these scenes of injury — moments of impact, of intimacy, of trauma — and reversing them, I hope to open up a space to see some of this violence anew.”
