Pigalle Paris: Nike Stadium “BARBES BASKETBALL” Video
Pigalle Paris has set up the “Amateur Basketball” project whose aim is to support basketball teams that have both a strong sports and social background. For their first initiative Pigalle has chosen their local team, Goutte d’Or, from nearby Barbès, to remake their uniforms. Stéphane Ashpool, who created the project, has collaborated with the Dutch filmmaker Paul Geusbroek on a video made in Barbès which documents the unique energy of this multiracial neighborhood with the added help of Nike Stadium Paris and Bowery Stadium. “BARBÉS BASKETBALL” is an imagery driven and powerful statement from Pigalle.
