Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Essentially a cinematic love letter to the game of basketball, this documentary was helmed by filmmaker Leon Gast, the Academy Award-winning director of When We Were Kings. Featuring such basketball luminaries as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Kobe Bryant, the film explores the game's modern roots on the blacktop courts of urban America and charts its rise to one of the most popular sports in the world. 1 Love screened at Norway's 2003 Filmquart Film Festival.
