It’s been nearly 20 years since directors Steve James, Peter Gilbert, and Frederick Marx premiered their documentary Hoop Dreams and won the Audience Award during the 1994 Sundance Film Festival.  To celebrate the anniversary, a digitally remastered high definition version of the film will screen for the first time as part of the 2014 Festival’s From the Collection program.  Hoop Dreams charts the five-year journey of Chicago basketball prodigies Arthur Agee and William Gates as they vigorously chase their on-the-court endeavors while confronting burdensome issues off the hardwood.Check out our interview with director Steve James, as he reflects on the Park City premiere of his film 20 years ago, its 170-minute runtime and unexpected commercial triumphs, and where Agee and Gates are today.  Learn more about the From the Collection screening and restoration process here.Photos from the Sundance Institute Archives
