"Is it rational, does it make sense? It is beautiful, it's great, it builds community," says Neelsen.
Hundreds showed up to see Neelsen's movie at the Green Bay Film Festival.
"You can watch this move specifically as a story about Brett and the Packers, it operates on that level, but it also operates on a deeper level, of the kind of psychology of sports fandom, what it means to be a fan. That's kindof the theme of the story," says Neelsen.
Packers fans say that they still have mixed emotions about Brett Favre, but that didn't stop many from getting in line over an hour early to get good seats for the show.
"Having seen him playing in purple, I will never forget that, but he is still a Packer, and he will always be a Packer to me," said one moviegoer.
"Don't like how it ended, him going to the two different teams, but otherwise I still admire him," said another.
Chris Jacke played for the Packers for eight years. He moved back to Green Bay after retiring from the NFL. Jacke says, he has a great relationship with fans, but players have to make tough choices.
"It's business, and that is a dirty word these days, it's business, the players look at it as business, they gotta take care of themselves, their families," says Jacke.
The documentary has been playing at festivals for a year. Neelsen says, he is thrilled to finally show it in Green Bay.
"We've wanted to since the very beginning, and the Green Bay Film Festival offered a perfect opportunity," says Neelsen.
Over 300 people attended the screening.
