Billy Corben — ‘The U’

This month Sean is in conversation with Miami-based documentary filmmaker and director, Billy Corben. Billy first gained notice in the early 2000's when his first documentary 'Raw Deal: A Question of Consent' premiered at The Sundance Film Festival, making him one of the youngest directors to be featured there to date. He followed that success with many others, including the critically lauded 'Cocaine Cowboys' in 2006.

We speak to Billy about his film 'The U,' one of ESPN's "30 for 30" films which chronicles the championship history of the University of Miami Hurricanes football team. The 'Canes won four championships in a span of eight years — from 1983 to 1991, but not before shaking up the college football establishment with their enormous talent, salty celebrations and well warranted swagger.
