Black Women Directors Series: "Love & Basketball"

Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, 4:30 p.m.

During the month of February, we want to celebrate black women filmmakers making films about the experiences of young black women. Films were selected by our Teen Advisory Group.

Love & Basketball (2000) was written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and stars Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps.

This film follows the story of Monica and Quincy, basketball stars who have been friends and rivals since they moved next door to each other at age 11. As high school ends their relationship turns romantic, but college and pro careers bring new challenges.  

This wholesome romance is rated PG-13, and our program is geared towards teens. Showing in the Lower Level Meeting Room.
