9-MAN is director Ursula Liang's documentary about a streetball game that originated in New York's Chinatown. It's a fast-paced and chaotic sport, and its rules are unique to Chinatown. So why haven't you heard of it? Because it's played only by men, and two-thirds of the players have to be "100% Chinese."
Curious to know more? If you happen to be in New York next Wednesday, March 27, you can catch a preview of Liang's documentary followed by a panel with the director, nine-man athletes, and historians at Museum of Chinese in America. Here are some more details about the event.
9-MAN PANELAdmission is $12 for non-members, or $7 for MOCA members. For more information, visit MOCA's website.
9-MAN is a feature documentary about an isolated and exceptionally athletic Chinese-American sport that's much more than a pastime.
