    'A Giant Awakens: the Rise of American Rugby' looks at the majestic history of American rugby and captures the essence, spirit, and challenges of the game in America today. This film showcases all levels of American rugby from youth to the USA national teams in this inspiring 60 minute sports documentary by BIN15 productions. Directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Sylvain Doreau, the journey begins in the late 1800's and runs through Olympic glory in the 1920's, including the separation from Gridiron American football. The journey continues after rugby's 50 year near hibernation and participation in the Rugby World Cups. The finale addresses the new Olympic opportunity for rugby in 2016. The film includes vintage footage from the American gold medal match that Sylvain helped uncover in France last year from the 1924 Olympics. With action-packed highlights set to music from today's top independent bands from the San Francisco Bay Area and interviews with key players and administrators, 'A Giant Awakens' is a must see for any sports fan
