The first trailer debuted for the basketball documentary Alaskan Nets set to make its world premiere at the 36th Santa Barbara International Film Festival in the Documentary Competition on Saturday, April 3rd.
The film is directed by Jeff Harasimowicz, who also produces along with Ryan Welch and Chris Pratt as executive producer.
Off the coast of southeast Alaska lies a remote island that is home to the Tsimshian Indians of Alaska’s last remaining native reserve, Metlakatla. For more than a century, two sacred traditions have defined Metlakatla: fishing and basketball. In an improbable journey, two cousins lead their team and town in search of their first state championship in more than thirty years – the only thing that will bring life back to an island that has been rocked by unimaginable tragedy.
