A film that a member of the MMXLII team became aware of last night so we wanted to share. A story of a black pro basketball player playing and living in Iran while tensions between Iran and the West begin to escalate.While playing basketball there the player Kevin Sheppard tries to separate politics and sports but finds it’s near impossible in Iran. From there he befriends three Iranian women where he learns from them as in his home becomes an oasis of free speech. They all are able to discuss things like religion, politics, gender roles and more. Sheppard’s season culminates with things bigger than basketball with “the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran’s reformist Green Movement – a powerful prelude to the sweeping changes across the Middle East in the wake of the Arab Spring.” Check out the trailer below and click here for more info on the movie itself, like the cast, story, where to see it, etc.
