THE BIG HOUSE (2018) - Kazuhiro Soda Season


A behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings, staff and fans of Michigan Stadium, the largest football stadium in north America. Filmed both on and off the field in Ann Arbor - a small college town with a huge research university and a history of political radicalism - by director Kazuhiro Soda, Markus Nornes and Terri Sarris plus 14 student filmmakers against the backdrop of the 2016 US election and the rise of Donald Trump, The Big House presents an energetic microcosm of modern American life.
