This is a short documentary shot during the 2012 basketball season.
As a Riverbank Alumni I have seen many friends go on to do amazing things as adults whether it was through athletics, music, art, careers or just become fascinating people.
We all seem to have an equal level of pride that we came from the town of Riverbank, Ca. even after moving on.
I started the work on this project in hopes of capturing a "small town" basketball team winning their way through the playoffs and playing in the championship game. They came 1, very close game away, but there was really more to the story. I was reminded of how much heart these kids have on and off the court, cultivated by strong friends and community usually referred to as family.
