A heads up for loyal Blazer fans in the neighborhood:
In celebration of the 40th year for the Portland Trailblazers, the Clinton Street Theater and Darkroom Associates proudly present “FAST BREAK”, a rare documentary about the 1977 Portland Trailblazers – directed by filmmaker, Don Zavin.
Evoking a cinema verite feel not found in most sports documentaries, FAST BREAK examines the 1977 Trailblazers in a surprisingly personal and compelling fashion. Inter-cutting excerpts from the 1977 playoff / championship season, the film steps outside of the basketball court, and into the everyday lives of the Trailblazers, as well as their coach Jack Ramsey. Whether it’s biking the Oregon coast with Bill Walton, hosting a kids basketball camp with Dave Twardzik, or joking with Maurice Lucas at the pool – FAST BREAK lets the players speak for themselves: about basketball, life and playing in Portland.
In celebration of Portland’s 2010 Playoff run, FAST BREAK will be screened at 9pm on April 29th at the Clinton Street Theater.
