Filmmakers Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau want you to go out and play basketball. But not at your gym. Their forthcoming documentary, Doin’ it in The Park, celebrates the history and culture of the New York City pick-up basketball scene. ” We hope the film inspires people of all ages to participate at their local court, whether that’s in Accra, Ghana, or The Pit in Washington Heights, Manhattan”, Garcia said in an interview with The Atlantic.

However, if you’ve never played pick-up ball before, this could make taking up the sport a whole lot more intimidating.
