WORLD PREMIERE More than the namesake of one of the most iconic sneakers, Stan Smith has lived a champion’s life on and off the tennis court. Chronicling his rise from collegiate superstar to World No.1 and beyond, Smith blazed new paths for athletes, both as a fashion icon and a humanitarian. Complete with intimate first-person accounts and dynamic archival materials, Danny Lee’s film brings us closer to the man behind the shoe. – Brandon Harrison

The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Danny Lee, Producer Philip Byron, Darryl McDaniels a founding member of Run DMC, and film subject Stan Smith, and Host of Complex’s “Sneaker Shopping” Joe la Puma. The Q&A will be moderated by Ryan Simmons, a writer for and video director for SB Nation, focusing on the sports brand’s video storytelling community, Secret Base.


All in-person screening venues provide hearing impaired listening devices upon request with venue management.
