A state-funded basketball league encourages at-risk youth to use sport as a tool to change their circumstances in this inspiring profile by Los Angeles-based director Jane Qian (previously featured here). Founded by Coach Sam Stukes, Bonafide Basketball is located in one of the most crime-ridden zip codes in Texas. The program is dedicated to giving young players an opportunity to be seen by college scouts and learn lifelong lessons about success, failure, and teamwork.
