FROM DEEP
HD VIDEO, 2013-14, COLOR, SOUND, 88 MINUTES

From Deep "looks at 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. Drawing his imagery from neighborhood pickup games, contemporary films, music videos, and spectacular sports footage, Kashmere charts a history of the game over the last century, including its rapid cultural rise in the 1980s, with the global branding of Michael Jordan; basketball's growing connection with hip-hop culture; and its multiplying fan base, which laid the groundwork for the sport's significance today." (Amy Beste, Conversations at the Edge)
