An independent documentary directed by Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau. The film explores the definition, history, culture, social impact and global influence of New York's outdoor summer basketball scene, the worldwide 'Mecca' of the sport.Written by
A documentary of New York City basketball in the open courts of the buroughs
Bobbito Garcia's narrated and directed opus 'Doin In The Park' does not rest as merely a triumph for NYC street ball's induction into film making history. Its merits serve to exemplify one of the most inspiring aspects of the human condition; passion. This film is completely built on that feverish state of dedication and lust for playing court side. Even if the viewer has little interest in basketball 'Doin In The Park' explores the workings of passion through the lens of the sport and the tradition to compete and commune, which for so may allowed a pivotal saving grace within the urban jungle. The cinematography and editing had the rhythm and structure to support this high octane theme. I toyed with the idea of giving it a 9 out of 10 as I am as a woman and would have liked to have seen more of the ladies. However, the greatest sign of a great work in culture is too implant itself in the mind of the viewer. 'Doin it The Park' has kept my mind well occupied for the last two weeks so I had to forgo the 9 and score the 10.
