The People's Joe: A True Story DVD

The People's Joe: A True Story DVD


The only documentary ever made about the life and legacy of Penn State’s beloved coach, Joe Paterno.

From a Flatbush street turned playground to a vast, uninterrupted valley framed by the Allegheny Mountains of rural Pennsylvania, the life of Joseph Vincent Paterno seemed perfectly formed by the physical landscapes that surrounded him.  Rough and tumble, strong and absolute.  “The People’s Joe” is the true story of Joe Paterno told by those who knew him well and those who never met him but loved him just the same. It is a lesson in devotion and helping others make their way through life.  It is about family, work, and God.  Even now, it is a story that might never be believed – had it not really happened.  But it did.

A Telly Award winning film from the producers of the EMMY nominated "The Joe We Know", "365 Days: A Year in Happy Valley", and “SANCTIONED”. Written, directed, and produced by Eric Porterfield.
