World Congress to Host World Premier of the Film "Head Games"

IBIA is pleased to host the world premier of the film, “Head Games”, which will be screened for the first time on Wednesday, March 21 at 8:00pm, during the 2012 Ninth World Congress on Brain Injury in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Following his graduation from Harvard where he had been an All-Ivy football player, Chris Nowinski’s career path took an unusual turn-he became a professional wrestler in the WWE. After suffering multiple concussions in football and wrestling Chris has become one of the world’s most well-known advocates of educating athletes and coaches of the short and long term dangers of concussions in all sports. Currently a PhD candidate at Boston University, the movie “Head Games’ is Chris’s story, with expert commentary from leading neurologists, neuro-pathologists, neuro-surgeons and neuro-psychologists. Produced and directed by internationally honored filmmakers Steve James (“Hoop Dreams”) and Bruce Sheridan along with Pulitzer Prize nominated Alan Schwarz, this world premiere movie takes a hard look at the real potential dangers of amateur and professional contact and collision sports.

All World Congress registrants are invited to attend this unique event from 8:00pm to 11:00pm at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre’s Pentland Suite on Level 1. For more information on the World Congress,click here.
