The Full Frame interviews: Steve James

Posted by on Fri, Apr 10, 2009 at 9:12 AM

Watch an interview with Hoop Dreams Director Steve James at the 2009 Full Frame Film Festival in Durham, NC, where James curated a sidebar of documentary films entitled The Sporting Life.

Hoop Dreams was revolutionary both in terms of scope and due to its immense popularity. In fact, when the film failed to gain a nomination for best feature documentary at the Academy Awards, a public outcry ensued and the selection process was modified thereafter. In 2007, the International Documentary Association named Hoop Dreams the No. 1 documentary in film history.

Read more from Rob Harrington's interview with Steve James prior to the festival.
