Tribeca Film Festival 2009 – Spike Lee on Kobe: One Man, One Game, No Second Takes

There are lots of things I’m looking forward to at the Tribeca Film Festival, but talking to Spike Lee about Kobe: Doin’ Work, his documentary about one Lakers game focusing only on Kobe Bryant with 30 cameras, was right near the top of my list. I got a screener of the film, which will air on ESPN May 16, and I watched it twice. I’m in a Los Angeles City Recreation and Parks Department basketball league, and I told Spike that I wanted all of my teammmates to watch the film because I felt like a better ball player after watching it… Cue the smack talk from my friends about my basketball skills.

During our time together, Spike and I talked about the making of the film, what basketball means to him, what inspired him to put this project together and what he’s up to next.

For more on this year’s festival, tune in to the AMC News Special on Fri., May 1 @ 11PM | 10C.
