ABOUT THE FILM

Not since Hoop Dreams has there been a portrait of urban basketball that's as raw, real and anchored in the true African American experience. This gritty, eye-opening film takes viewers deep inside the intricate culture of urban pickup basketball and its players. By shining an unflinching light on one court and the lives of five men who play there, Ballin' at the Graveyard vividly reveals the heart, humor and brotherhood forged on the court and beyond. This surprising documentary knocks down stereotypes and challenges assumptions, offering a perspective on African American men – as fathers, mentors and community-minded leaders – that is all but ignored by today's media. Ballin' at the Graveyard is an uplifting film that will challenge what you think you know about the world behind the chain link fence. - See more at: http://ballinatthegraveyard.com/synopsis.html#sthash.Zu1yCDPO.dpuf
