The Ball forms the basis for a new documentary by director Jerome Thelia entitled BOUNCE: How the Ball Taught the World to Play.
I served as screenwriter and one of many on-screen experts. Like the book, the film explores the story of the ball across cultures and time and investigates the question of how this simple object has come to play such an important role in our lives. In March of 2015 BOUNCE will have its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, and be part of the SXSports section as well. From there, we expect to hit the festival circuit and to secure widespread distribution.
