Dream team 1935

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

Presented by the Consulate of Latvia in New York

Latvia. Dir. Aigars Grauba. 2012, 120 mins. Digital projection. With Jānis Āmanis, Inga Alsiņa. Based on the true story of the little Latvian basketball team that could, this triumphant sports drama meticulously evokes the uneasy era between the two world wars, when Europe’s nations came together for the very first European Basketball Championships. The unlikely heroes: a team of scrappy Latvian underdogs who succeed against all odds, including their country’s own bureaucratic interference. Lavishly mounted and excitingly shot to convey the visceral thrill of the sport, this uplifting tale of hoop dreams is a mighty effort from the burgeoning Latvian film industry.
