The Dash (Ryvok) by Kanagat Mustafin (Kazakhstan, 2010, 88 min.). A talented basketball player suffers a crippling injury because of an envious teammate and loses his place on the team. Having dreamed of and studied only basketball, he sees his career in ruins, and no future in an unforgiving world. But inspired by a childhood experience, when he once made a dash to reach the top, he rallies his will to overcome the impossible. With the aid of an unorthodox coach, and the example of his idol, Michael Jordan, he rebuilds his body, his game and his life. Writer/Director Kanagat Mustafin's directorial debut explores the American game in the context of life in Kazakhstan. In Russian with English subtitles.
