DOCUMENTARY FEATURE / OFFICIAL SELECTION 93 MINUTES / USA / 2015 Director: Darcy Dennett Producer: Darcy Dennett Co-Producer: Lindsay Rothenberg Executive Producers: Darcy Dennett, Elissa Jones, David Backes, Kelly Backes, Dana Edwards The Champions is an inspirational story about the pit bulls rescued from the brutal fighting ring of Atlanta Falcon’s star quarterback Michael Vick, and those who risked it all to save them, despite pressure from PETA and The Humane Society to euthanize the dogs. It is a story of second-chances, redemption and hope. This uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs — about prejudice, being misunderstood, the power of resilience and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals. This film contains mature themes related to dog fighting.
