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.

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.
