There’s something beautiful about struggle. The way it puts on display the vulnerability of a person, while simultaneously showcasing that same individual’s incredible strength. Struggle adds a unique—and essential—piece to a person’s life story. When a person shares his/her story, struggles and all, that is a conscious effort, often put forth with a goal in mind.
Dirk Nowitzki isn’t the only Maverick with a new documentary.
Charlie Villanueva will host a screening on Wednesday in Dallas of his new film, Season X: The Charlie Villanueva Story.
The documentary tells Villanueva’s life while dealing with alopecia, a disease that prohibits victims from growing hair anywhere on their bodies.
“I’ve talked about my story before, but not in this much detail,” Villanueva said. “I felt like it was the right time to do something like this.”
The film will be officially released during All-Star Weekend in Toronto, where Villanueva started his NBA career.
Nowitzki’s documentary, The Perfect Shot, debuted earlier this summer.
