Creating Hackney as Home:
Five reflections on a London borough


Michael's film

Home Team

My film is about playing basketball, being part of a team and how this is, for me, a way of life. In my film I talk about these ideas with my team mates and coach. My film gives an inside look at what we do during basketball training at my school: like drills, practicing matches, discipline and hard work, as well as the fun side and our team spirit. I hope my film will portray a different image of what young men like me enjoying doing together on a Friday night.
