Newly restored for its 20th anniversary, Hoop Dreams has never looked so good on the big screen. The film follows two Chicago teens, Arthur Agee and William Gates, over their four years of high school as they aspire to use their basketball skills to create better futures for their families. When the film was released, Roger Ebert wrote, “It takes us, shakes us, and make us think in new ways about the world around us. It gives us the impression of having touched life itself.”
This screening is co-presented by Triangle Offense.
