Doin’ It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC is an independent documentary directed by Bobbito Garcia (yes, THAT Bobbito) and Kevin Couliau. The documentary takes you on a journey in New York City, where pick-up basketball is not JUST a sport, but 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 ballplayer who all day looks forward to calling “next” game at their local schoolyard.

We are presenting a special Screening of this film in Washington DC on Thursday, July 11th at 7:30pm at E Street Cinema.  This screening will only happen if 91 people purchase tickets before July 4th. You can find out more about the screening and purchase tickets HERE.
