Warriors of Liberty City

Warriors of Liberty City

“Warriors of Liberty City,” a docuseries from PGA award-winner Evan Rosenfeld explores a crime-ridden neighborhood in Miami, Florida that is arguably the NFL’s largest, most successful football factory. The series follows a season with the Liberty City Warriors, a youth football program founded by an unlikely mentor: Luther Campbell, also known as “Uncle Luke.” Before Liberty City native Barry Jenkins won his historic Oscar® for Moonlight, the city was best known for producing some of the biggest names in football. It's a place synonymous with poverty and violence, but in the face of incredible challenges and tragedy, the Warriors learn to triumph both on and off the field.
