presented by: Canadian Film Festival
In partnership with the Canadian Film Festival, REEL CANADA is giving Canadians another chance to watch the winner of the 2021 William F. White Reel Canadian Indie Award — Events Transpiring Before, During, and After a High School Basketball Game.
About the Film
It’s 1999 and the Middleview Ducks boys basketball team are about to play the most low-stakes game of their lives. As the team prepares for another certain loss, the dramas around the game become more of a focus than the score. Locker room conversations about existentialism, an assistant coach’s obsession with an NBA offence technique, organizing a radical theatre protest, and frantically searching for an osteoporosis-stricken canine are just some of the events that take place before, during, and after the high school basketball game.
You can stream this film for 48 hours, beginning at 7 AM EDT on Wed. April 21
