Dir. Steve James. 1994, 170 mins. 35mm. Two African-American high school students from inner-city Chicago are recruited into a predominantly white rural school with an excellent basketball team. An epic film that takes us into the troubled worlds of education, sports, race, and poverty in the U.S., Hoop Dreams is often considered unrivalled among sports documentaries.
