The Heart of the Game
"The Heart of the Game" (Ward Serrill, 2005) Some folks I used to work with did the post-sound (and scratch narrations) for this extraordinary documentary about six years in the life of the Roosevelt Girls' Basketball Team. I've been hearing about it forever, but I've finally gotten a chance to see it now that's its out on DVD, and its every bit as good as the hype--one of those stories that you'd dismiss out-of-hand in a work of fiction, but grounded in the reality of a video'd image makes one's heart swell with pride at the same time it's pumping just a little faster. Seek it out. Make time for it. It's that good.
