This award-winning documentary from Lemon Martini Productions tackles the highly topical issues of media manipulation, science for hire, and perversion of the legal system, all through the lens of the Deflategate scandal. Through interviews with attorneys, journalists, professors, and fans, the film examines how accusations of deflated footballs became a national obsession.

The film goes beyond the football to show how the tactics utilized by the NFL in this scandal are not unique, but are frequently replicated to manipulate public opinion, influence government regulation, muddy the waters around science, and unfairly impact the outcome of court cases. Four Games in Fall examines how media, science, and the legal system can be undermined and co-opted by powerful interests to achieve ends that frequently run contrary to the functioning of our democracy.

The film features interviews with NFLPA spokesperson George Atallah, NY Law School Professor Robert Blecker, Patriots Attorney Daniel L. Goldberg, MIT Professor John Leonard, Sport Illustrated Legal Analyst and UNH Law School Dean Michael McCann, Jane McManus, formerly with ESPN, Editor of Pulitzer Prize winning Center for Public Integrity Jim Morris, Attorney Jon Ruckdeschel, Author and Barstool Sports writer Jerry Thornton, and consumer psychology Professor Andrew E. Wilson.
