Documentarian Daniel Hedges - Hoops Africa: Ubuntu Matters

Sunday, January 6

In 2008, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers used the Philosophy of Ubuntu (An ancient African notion of unity) to bring his team together and work unselfishly towards winning the championship. Through interviews with NBA players and coaches as well as everyday role models, Hoops Africa: Ubuntu Matters, which premiered on NBA TV in late 2017, tells the story of this winning team as well as how basketball is being used as a development tool for kids and players in Zimbabwe, the history of the sport on the continent of Africa and the potential of the sports future star athletes.
