Fresh Docs Screening of "Senior Night"
Friday, April 28, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
The Center for Documentary Studies and the Southern Documentary Fund are pleased to present a free screening of David Mayer's "Senior Night," a short film retelling the final basketball game of a graduating high school senior, Anthony Peak. Juxtaposing his nostalgia and bittersweet emotions with rich moments from the game, "Senior Night" captures the poignant ending of a beloved sport. As Anthony expresses his memory of basketball in real-time, his reflection achieves dreaminess and sometimes even poetry-a near antithesis of typical sports coverage. Concerned more with the highs and lows of players' emotions than the actual events of the game, Senior Night is a wishful celebration of the final moments of a sports career.The film is presented as part of the Fresh Docs series featuring documentary works-in-progress; following the screenings, a moderated conversation with the filmmaker will be held, during which the audience provides valuable feedback.Note: This screening is a Fresh Docs screenings are free, but attendees must RESERVE A TICKET via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fresh-docs-senior-night-tickets-33336662856
