ABOUT THE FILM
In 2010 Salt Springer Yoni went to work with an NGO called Hoops 4 Hope in South Africa and Zimbabwe. Forming a strong friendship with basketball and life skills coach Lala, he set out to create a documentary illustrating the impact basketball has on some of those countries’ poorest townships. The resulting film follows five of the top up and coming basketball players in Cape Town and Harare as they take us on a journey through one day in their busy lives. For these young Africans with overwhelming hoop dreams, basketball is more than just a game. It symbolizes hope for a brighter future.
