Kevin Rafferty's documentary Harvard Beats Yale 29-29 recreates the famous 1968 football game between the two Ivy League rivals — and the political turmoil of the age — by mixing together archival game footage with interviews with the players and the spectators.

Rafferty studied architecture at Harvard and film at the California Institute of the Arts. He was the director, producer, editor and cinematographer for Harvard Beats Yale 29-29. His other film credits include The Atomic Cafe, Blood in the Face, Feed and The Last Cigarette.
