Hoop Dreams (film)

Arthur Agee is one of two Chicago-area high school basketball players whose lives were chronicled in the award winning 1994 documentary, “Hoop Dreams.” The film follows Agee and another rising young basketball star, William Gates, from their poor Chicago neighborhood as they transfer schools to a private school to have a better chance at playing in the NBA and improving their education at the same time. Gordon Quinn is the artistic director and founding member of Kartemquin Films, a nationally recognized media arts organization that acts as a bridge between communities and the media and fosters the growth of emerging filmmaking voices passionate about social issues.  For more information on the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, visit www.hsdfi.org.
