“Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation” is a documentary about the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Team‘s competition in the 2015 World Box Lacrosse Championships, which were held for the first time on a reservation, in Onondaga in New York. Long before it became a professional sport, lacrosse was the traditional game of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), which makes it ridiculous that in the 2010 Championships, the United Kingdom decided not to accept the Iroquois Nationals’ tribal passports, causing the team to decline to compete. Having the 2015 Championships take place in Onondaga, the Capitol of the Iroquois Confederacy, is significantly more like it. Directed by Peter Spirer and Peter Baxton, the film will receive worldwide distribution in November 2016 through Xlrator Media’s “LIFEFRAME” documentary label.
