Watch and discuss Concussion at the Klamath County Library

Saturday, January 20th 2pm
Downtown Klamath County Library

The downtown Klamath County Library and the Klamath Regional Health Equity Coalition are hosting a screening and discussion of the film Concussion on Saturday, January 20th at 2 pm.

The film screening is part of the Klamath Regional Health Equity Coalition’s Diversity Through the Arts program, a series of discussions about films and books that describe culture clashes and the benefits of embracing diversity.

Based on a true story, Concussion follows Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist whose research into chronic brain injury suffered by football players thrusts him into a struggle with the National Football League. In the early 2000s, Omalu finds several former NFL players who died with symptoms of brain damage, including memory loss and personality changes. He asserts these conditions are the result of repetitive injuries to the brain suffered while playing football. He presents his findings to the NFL, but the league denies the connection to football and severely pressures Omalu to back off his research…

Concussion is rated PG-13 and runs for 2 hours, 3 minutes.
