MIDNIGHT MADNESS

Following our 16th festival, which was by far our biggest and best yet, we present the next date in our Film Club series with Midnight Madness, a stark portrayal of London-based basketball players. These young men are given the chance of the lifetime to compete with NBA players through a tournament established to tackle inner-city crime.
The film follows Nhamo Shire as he stages basketball tournaments around the country, conveying his personal vision of the sport as a means of uniting communities haunted by gang warfare.
Not only does Midnight Madness strike up a worthy social cause in the context of an athletic celebration, but it also embodies the Raindance ideal, having been completed on a scant budget of £15,000 by BIFA-winning director Charles Henri-Belleville in his documentary follow-up to The Inheritance.
David Boaretto, the film’s Producer, will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening
Please RSVP for this event. Guests welcome. For more information visit RAINDANCE FILM CLUB or email FilmClub@raindance.co.uk
