Cast and crew to attend screening of "Greater," the Brandon Burlsworth story

Posted By on Fri, Aug 12, 2016 at 3:49 PM

On the cusp of college football season, the Arkansas Motion Picture Institute and the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce are screening "Greater," a film depicting the remarkable rise of Brandon Burlsworth, an offensive lineman for the Razorbacks whose tenacity propelled him from a walk-on to an All-American as a fifth-year senior, and who died tragically in a car crash in 1999 just after being drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. 

The screening takes place Tuesday, Aug. 23, 7 p.m. at Razorback Cinema in Fayetteville, and will be followed by a conversation with producer and screenwriter Brian Reindl, director and screenwriter David Hunt, and Christopher Severio, who plays Burlsworth. Get tickets here.

    September 15, 2016
    If you tuned in to ESPN Saturday night or settled into your seats at Fort Worth's compact but energetic Amon Carter Stadium, you undoubtedly felt like the impending Arkansas-TCU tilt was going to be compelling, if for no other reason because it pitted a burgeoning Big 12 power against a rising SEC program, with both having that Southwest Conference badging that went dormant a quarter-century ago. /more/
