Showtimes and location

Film description

A remarkable documentary about two black inner-city Chicago boys who go to great lengths to become NBA basketball stars. Traveling 90 minutes each way from their inner-city homes to St. Joseph High School in Westchester, Illinois, a predominately white suburban school well-known for the excellence of its basketball program, the two teenagers dream of stardom and, with the support of their close-knit families, they battle the social and physical obstacles that stand in their way. 

Restored and rereleased for its 25th anniversary, Hoop Dreams is a remarkable documentary that was shot over the course of 5 years.
