AN UNBREAKABLE BOND MAKES ITS WORLD DEBUT AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

A star-studded roster of attendees came out for the world debut of An Unbreakable Bond, a film by Emilio Estefan which documents the relationship between NFL Hall of Famer Nick Buoniconti, his son Marc, and their nearly three decade struggle to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. The film made its world debut on Tuesday, March 11th at the 31st edition of Miami Film Festival (MIFF), produced and presented by Miami Dade College (MDC), at the Olympia Theater at The Gusman Center for the Performing Arts.

Nick Buoniconti and Gloria and Emilio Estefan were joined by NBC News Icon Tom Brokaw, who introduced the film, and NBC Legendary Sportscaster Bob Costas, who moderated the question and answer session following the movie which led to the Estefans, on behalf of the Gloria Estefan Foundation, to make a $100,000 donation to The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis.  The donation will help continue with the important clinical trials underway at The Miami Project at the University of Miami.
