FROM DEEP screening & director's talk

✦ /// FROM DEEP
Coming home after a year of racking up awards and praise, Brett Kashmere's ambitious documentary is part sociological treatise, part audiovisual mix-tape, charting the three-decade love affair between basketball and rap.

Drawing its imagery from contemporary pick-up games, movies, music videos, video games, and spectacular sports footage, FROM DEEP is about the game of basketball and its profound role in American life – as an everyday street game played by millions around the country; a force in fashion, music, and mass media; and a platform for broader issues of race and class.

✦ /// DIRECTOR'S TALK w SPECIAL GUESTS
Kashmere, members of the production, and local sports commentator will discuss the creative process behind the making of FROM DEEP considering professional and pick-up basketball in connection to wider concerns of race, class, hip hop, commercialism, youth culture, and the business of basketball.

Kashmere is a Canadian-born, Pittsburgh-based filmmaker, curator, and writer. Combining traditional research methods with materialist aesthetics and hybrid interfaces, Kashmere's video essays explore the intersection of history and (counter-) memory, popular culture, geographies of identity, and the politics of representation.
