From Deep 

When: Fri., March 18 2016


Unexposed Microcinema showcases modern experimental films that open minds to the multiplicity of human perception, but the organizers are not impervious to the calendar. Bowing to good old March Madness, the series presents From Deep, an experimental sports documentary directed by Brett Kashmere. In a previous video essay, Kashmere examined hockey violence and its place within the Canadian identity using standard documentary moves as well as experimental film techniques. From Deep looks at basketball through the lens of its connection with the wider culture, hip-hop, the branding of Michael Jordan, and the sport's evolution from modest beginnings as the invention of P.E. teacher James Naismith to its eventual ascendancy to a billion-dollar industry whose stars are treated as demigods. Unlike standard-issue sports docs, Kashmere's work incorporates expressive touches that recall other media, and From Deep has been described as "part sociological treatise, part mixtape." —David Klein
