Filmed over a five-year period, Hoop Dreams follows two inner-city boys as they navigate the complex, competitive world of scholastic athletics at a prestigious college, while also striving to overcome the intense pressures of family life and the realities of the Chicago streets.
Not just a landmark documentary, but a true American epic, Hoop Dreams caused a sensation on its release in 1994, and today ranks as one of the greatest works of non-fiction cinema ever made. One of the most acclaimed films to ever play Sundance.
