The Free Agent
Directed / Produced by Anthony Molina

Free agent Tristan Bowen shows us what a typical day in his life looks like. 
The 1st homegrown player in MLS soccer history discusses the challenges of balancing his personal and professional life during free agency. 
Bowen exhibits a level of emotional maturity by continuing to work hard and remaining dedicated to his craft while still finding the time to express gratitude for every aspect of his life.
We see what drives Bowen when the bright lights of a stadium filled with thousands of passionate fans are replaced with the solitude of training alone while preparing for the next opportunity in his career.

As of recently, Tristan was signed by the Oakland Roots.
