PLAY IT AGAIN SAM: THE SAM SCHOENFELD STORY

Director: Matt Berkowitz
Members $9 / Public $13 Incl. Reception
Discussion and Reception with Dr. Robert Schoenfeld (Sam's son), filmmaker Matt Berkowitz, author Stan Friedland

Plus Cosmos, the latest collection of photographs by Dr. Robert Schoenfeld in the CAC gallery

This lively documentary highlights the life, legacy, and unique wizardry of Jewish Basketball
legend Sam Schoenfeld, who excelled as a player, coach, and Basketball official. In the 1920s
and 30s, Sammy was one of the best players of his era and was compared favorably to Nat Holman,
the yardstick player of his time. Before the NBA, Sam and his peers just wanted to play ball and
entertain the masses who were struggling through the tough years of the Depression. Sam was a
star player on some of the premier teams of his time. As a superb coach, he built championship
teams and positively impacted the lives of his players in ways they still talk about today. He then
went on to be a much admired basketball official, helping to found the Collgiate Basketball Officials
Association. Because of his efforts, not one official was implicated in the gambling scandals of the
early Fifties that almost buried the game. The memorial award in his name is still given today, and
remains one of the most prestigious awards in collegiate basketball. Long Island filmmaker Matt
Berkowitz vividly explores Sam's life and career via original photos, films, and colorful interviews
with his family, friends, and fellow players. Based on the book by Stan Friedland, Play It Again
Sam also captures a special moment in time when Basketball became an important bridge into American
society of young Jewish athletes who came to dominate the game for many years. USA, 2011,
45 mins., color  Director: Matt Berkowitz  Writer: Landon Reagan, based on the book by Stan Friedland
