AFI announces the “AFI Uncensored Documentary Screening” presentation of Kristopher Belman’s MORE THAN A GAME on Thursday, October 1 at 8:00PM.
MORE THAN A GAME
DIR: Kristopher Belman
FEATURING LeBron James, Willie McGee, Romeo Travis, Coach Dru Joyce II, Sian Cotton, James Dru Joyce III
Five talented young basketball players from Akron, Ohio, star in this remarkable true-life coming of age story about uncommon friendship in the face of all too common adversities. Coached by a charismatic but inexperienced player’s father, and led by future NBA superstar LeBron James, the Fab Five’s improbable seven-year journey leads them from a decrepit inner-city gym to the doorstep of a national high school championship. Along the way, the close-knit team is repeatedly tested—both on and off the court—as James’s exploding worldwide celebrity threatens to destroy everything they’ve set out to achieve together. MORE THAN A GAME combines a series of unforgettable one-on-one interviews with rare news footage, never-before-seen home videos and personal family photographs to bring this heart-warming and wholly American story to life.
You will cheer from the sidelines as the team rises and falls, and rises again, enduring hardships, pressures and triumphs, all while maintaining a remarkably strong and exceptional bond of brotherhood.
A Q&A with filmmaker Kristopher Belman and producer Harvey Mason, Jr., will immediately follow the screening.
6360 W Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA
