  •  Add to Calendar 2019-06-15 2019-06-15 America/Toronto True North at Luminato Making the National Basketball Association (NBA) is every young player’s dream, but for Toronto’s hopefuls, it seems the ultimate goal might be just a bit closer to reach. Next to USA, Canada provides more talent to NBA than anywhere else in the world, and Toronto is at the centre of this boom. The city’s programs and coaches are some of the country’s best, but what does it really take to make the ultimate hoop dream come true? This slick documentary series follows five of the city’s leading players, including Keone Davis, Malachi Ndur, Cordell Veira, Jalen Celestine and the world’s top-ranked 12 year-old Elijah Fisher. But as courtside cameras and intimate exchanges reveal, it takes more than athletic ability to navigate their paths to success. Strong communities, emotional bonds and mental focus don’t happen on the hardwood, but somewhere much deeper. As fast-paced and as engaging as the game itself, this striking series takes us into the very heart of Toronto’s basketball scene. Harboufront Centre Leanna Shoniker marketingintern@luminato.com
