Missing Sports Crowds? Here is a Film for You

Missing Sports Crowds? Here is a Film for You

Do you yearn for sports crowds and local teams playing against each other?

Look no further… You can watch this award-winning film right now.  Watch the documentary film “Zero” for $$2 or buy a digital copy of the movie for $5. This film is the 2020 WINNER of the Broadcast Education Association Festival of Arts International.

Film Synopsis:

After two winless seasons, Central High School Basketball Coach Armando Johnson feels “defeated as a human.” For students such as Donte Reese, basketball is life. And he’s not sure what he’ll do if he can’t continue to play. For head coach Johnson, defeat is the driver of a new plan. He’s retiring to do something about the problems he thinks causes failure.

“Zero” explores how students, parents, and coaches handle defeat. The Central High School boys’ basketball team has not won a game in two years. This is a story of defeat and how players and coaches react to it. The documentary’s director Shakha Benbow says,

“This film highlights the personal toll losing has on a group of players, coaches, and parents… The reality of this toll is heightened as we look through the lens of a talented high school senior and a coach in his last season.”
