FLHS Graduates, Brothers Among Several Producers of Oscar-Winning Film ‘Undefeated’

Glen and Ralph Zipper both graduate from Fort Lee High School; now they're Oscar winning producers.

A film produced in part by two graduates won the Oscar Sunday for best documentary feature at the 84th Academy Awards.

Among several producers of the film “Undefeated,” which tells the story of a struggling high school football team from a poor neighborhood in Memphis, Tenn., are Glen Zipper, 39, a 1990 graduate of FLHS, and his brother, Ralph, 45, who also graduated from the high school, NorthJersey.com recently reported.

Directed by Daniel Lindsay and T.J. Martin, “Undefeated” defeated “Hell and Back Again,” “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front,” “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” and “Pina” to take home top honors in the category.
