Celebrate the beginning of the Portland Trail Blazers' 2018-19 season with a screening of the rare 1978 documentary FAST BREAK. NBA World Champion Trail Blazer Lloyd Neal and award-winning sports journalist Jason Quick in attendance for a Q&A!
Evoking a cinema verite feel not found in most sports documentaries, FAST BREAK examines the 1977 Trail Blazers 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 Trail Blazers, 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.
