Hoop Dreams: where are the main figures now



Twenty years after the landmark documentary was cruelly snubbed at the Oscars, we take a look at where the principals are today

In 1986, filmmakers Steve James, Frederick Marx and Peter Gilbert set out to film a 30-minute PBS documentary on playground basketball as a window into Chicagos street culture. Some 300 hours of footage and three years of editing later, Hoop Dreams emerged overnight as a landmark documentary. Roger Ebert labeled it the best film of the 1990s (ahead of Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas and Fargo), and its exclusion from the Best Documentary category at the 1995 Academy Awards led to a restructuring of how the category was evaluated.

Because of an inability to meet tuition demands (and coach Gene Pingatores skepticism about his size), Agee would transfer to the public Marshall High School while Gates remained at St Joes all four years.

A packed committee room in the House of Lords heard representatives of punters and bookmakers discuss the extent of the problem and what might be done, and the betting industry was urged by Lord Lipsey to start taking the issue seriously.

I have a slight feeling about this that its like the fixed odds betting terminals, Lord Lipsey said, referring to a recent report which predicted the government will soon reduce the maximum stake for gaming machines in betting shops to just 2. This is a prospect that fills bookmakers with horror and wiped 660m off their stock market value on Monday.
