HOOP DREAMS (Doc Night) w/Intro and Q&A by the film's creator Frederick Marx
This documentary follows two inner-city Chicago residents, Arthur Agee and William Gates, as they follow their dreams of becoming basketball superstars. Beginning at the start of their high school years, and ending almost 5 years later, as they start college, we watch the boys mature into men, still retaining their "Hoop Dreams". Both are recruited into the same elite high school as their idol, former Detroit Piston superstar Isiah Thomas.
An intro and discussion/Q&A following the film with the film's creator Frederick Marx!
