Behind the shot you know is the American story you’ll never forget.
From Executive Producer Stephen Curry, the award-winning JUMP SHOT celebrates the true story of Kenny Sailors, the forgotten basketball legend who introduced the jump shot, became a 2-time collegiate All American and NBA pioneer, revolutionized the sport for women, served as a US Marine in WWII, and then quietly faded into historyto be forgotten by the sport he helped pioneer. Sixty-years later, he emerges through his most passionate supporters — Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, Clark Kellogg, Bob Knight, Lou Carnesecca, Kiki Vandeweghe, Nancy Lieberman, Chip Engelland, Tim Legler, Fennis Dembo, David Goldberg and a host of other basketball and sport legends —in an effort to recognize Sailors in the Naismith Hall of Fame and tell the story of his impact on basketball, his country, and the people who knew him best. Not Rated. Director Jacob Hamilton (US 2019) 97 min.
Cinema Exclusive Content: The event will include a 15-minute pre-recorded pre-show with Steph Curry, director Jacob Hamilton and others describing the innovations within basketball since Kenny’s first jump shot.
