Relentless New York

Choosing to definitively celebrate the greatest city in the world today. (Shout-out to Conrazón for the heads up!) 

Psyched for Doin’ It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC, a documentary co-directed by Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau, which gathers characters and legends from 180 courts around the city. This historical and cultural insight into pick-up ball is an undeniable artifact, a tradition and attitude that is distinctly New York. I have spent innumerable afternoons watching the courts on West 4th and have the utmost respect for ballers who cultivate their skills out of passion and love for the game. This independent film has already garnered several awards from film festivals around the country, and is showing in select theaters throughout 2013 and 2014. Rush Art Gallery is exhibiting photographs from these summer stadiums, curated by Dexter Wimberly, for the month of September. The opening is Thursday, September 12, from 6-8 pm.
