NEW YORK: Pakistani Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy pairs up with American Basketball star LeBron James for a new film.

The film which is titled “Student-Athlete” is directed by Chinoy and produced by LeBron.

Obaid-Chinoy has co-directed the film alongside Trish Dalton, with whom she spent two years investigating the college sports industry and the price the players have to pay to be a part of it.

According to the official description published on the website, the documentary revolves around the complex rules of Amateur athletics in the United States and how they impact uncompensated athletes and their families.

 

“Unpaid college athletes generate billions of dollars for their institutions every year. Student-Athlete unveils the exploitative world of high-revenue college sports through the stories of four young men at different stages of their athletic careers, as well as a coach-turned-advocate and a whistle-blowing shoe rep who exposes the money trail.”

The film is set to grace the television screens via HBO on October 2nd.
