ABOUT THE FILM
“DOIN’ IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL, NYC” explores the history, culture and social impact of New York’s summer “b-ball” scene, also known as “pick-up ball” and “playground basketball.”
In New York City, pick-up is not just a sport. It is a way of life. There are 700+ outdoor courts, and an estimated 500,000 players, the most loyal of which approach the game as a religion, and the playground as their church.
DOIN’ IT IN THE PARK lovingly uncovers this movement through the voices of playground legends, NBA athletes, and most importantly the common man and woman, including those incarcerated and handicapped, who loyally look forward to experiencing the raw energy of the game at their local outdoor court.
“You can play high school or college for four years. You can play Pro for a decade. You can play pick-up... for life.”
WORLDWIDE DIGITAL RELEASE MAY 1, EXCLUSIVELY @ DOINITINTHEPARK.COM
