City Paper is not for tourists
The AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs Documentary Festival kicks off big tonight at 7 p.m., with fest opener More Than a Game playing in all three houses at AFI Silver.
The film follows LeBron James and four other Akron, Ohio basketball players in their teen years, their talent and perseverance taking them from inner-city courts to championships and fame.
James will be in attendance along with former teammates Sian Cotton, Willie McGee, Little Dru Joyce III, Romeo Travis, and their coach, Dru Joyce II. A post-screening discussion with them and the doc’s director, Kristopher Belman, will follow.
More good stuff slated for the rest of the week; check out our full Silverdocs coverage and clear your calenders.
