NOWNESS has released a film capturing the rawness of New York City’s street basketball, specifically at the courts on the corner of West 4th Street and 6th Avenue. The short film was directed by Alex Grazioli, who was captivated by the the in-your-face nature of the games, metaphorically drawing similarities between the caged basketball setting to a prison braggadocio environment. Although he doesn’t participate in the sport, the cultured filmmaker believes it exposes certain characteristics deep inside an individual, proving your worth and limits simultaneously in games that are essentially for pride.
