"Doin' It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC" premier w/ Bobbito Garcia
Monday, May 20, 2013 at 9:15 PM - Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 9:15 PM (PDT)
DOIN' IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL, NYC is an independent documentary directed by Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau. The film explores the definition, history, culture, and social impact of New York's summer b-ball scene, widely recognized as the worldwide "Mecca" of the sport.
The film lovingly uncovers this movement through the voices of playground legends, NBA athletes, and most importantly the common ballplayer who all day looks forward to calling "next" game at their local schoolyard.
Broaklyn, fresco, and Top Ten Social hand picked this one for you, as it's all about BIG FUN on the court and the soundtrack was curated by our pal, Bobbito Garcia.
Co-Directors Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau visited 180 courts throughout NYC's five boroughs to create their debut documentary. They traveled to a majority of the locations by bicycle, carrying camera equipment and a ball in their backpacks. The film's title refers as much to the subject matter as it does to the method of filmmaking, providing an unprecedented perspective on urban America's most popular, and accessible, free recreation.
Top Ten Social's organizational goal is to push the cultural, artistic and intellectual envelope of Afro-futurist urban expression and create sustainable models through innovative events like our Speaker Series, Performance Series, and some of the best parties in the Bay Area!
Our mission encompasses informative and educational approaches to cultural entertainment, which recognize ancestry while updating tradition, and build up the spiritual, mental and economic health of urban communities.
Originally founded in 1966 in Milwaukee, TTS is currently based in Oakland, California.
