No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson
DIRECTOR: STEVE JAMES
Introduced by and Q&A with Steve James.
Returning to the subject of basketball—and the light that it shines on American race relations—after his acclaimed Hoop Dreams, James revisits the controversy surrounding the 1993 bowling alley riots in James’ hometown of Hampton, Virginia, and the involvement of then-high schooler and future NBA superstar Iverson, initially sentenced to a shocking 15-year sentence. A clear-eyed examination of a community and the little-spoken divide that it obeys.
