A balanced and detailed depiction of the impact of the Air Jordan Culture - must see!
30 July 2020 | by TobySwarensenSee all my reviews

This film takes you on a journey. It explores the marketing genius behind the rise of the multi-billion dollar business. The archival footage is spectacular and has been cleverly edited together so you feel like you've been transported back into the 80's and 90's. It's a celebration of this iconic product and its impact on popular culture, however it also shines a light on the dark side. Something that's rarely discussed but should be. It's a great watch! I've already recommended it to several friends and posted it online.
