GlobeDocs presents: Life Without Basketball

The Coolidge Theatre, Brookline, MA | February 26, 2019 | 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Cost: $FREE

Filmmakers Collaborative is proud to be partnering once again with the GlobeDocs screening series as FC Member Tim O’Donnell shares his documentary LIFE WITHOUT BASKETBALL.

Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir broke records and barriers on her way to become the first Division I athlete to play basketball while wearing hijab. When a controversial ruling ends her chances at playing professionally, she re-examines her faith and identity as a Muslim American.

Tim O’Donnell (Co-Director and Co-Producer) and Jon Mercer (Co-Director and Co-Producer) will both be participating in a post film discussion.

The Boston Globe’s Loren King will be moderating the discussion.
