First Film Announced for Maysles Cinema Outdoor Music and Film!
We have secured our first film - "Doin' It in The Park"! The legendary Bobbito García and Kevin Couliau traveled through all five boroughs of NYC on their bikes with cameras and a basketball to 180 different basketball courts to find the perfect pick-up game. The film tells the story of NYC street basketball and what a story it is - featuring legends like Dr. J, Pee Wee Kirkland, Kenny Anderson, and many more.
And, of course, the music can't be missed - Eddie Palmieri wrote an original score with music by Donald Byrd & the Blackbyrds, The Roots, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Jurassic 5 and Hocus Pocus.
The screening is set for the mecca of street basketball, Rucker Park Camp, Rucker Park, 155th Street. Sundown, Saturday July 14th. After the game, after the dj. 100 percent free.
Look for a message from Bobbito early next week, until then, check out the trailer and the new reward - a signed movie poster! Thank you for making film and music in Harlem a reality we are 40% to our goal - please share our project with your friends!
