SYNOPSIS

A group activity – playing basketball in public. All the participants hold the rights to show the video: Borut Korošec, Jaka Mihelič, Damjan Švara, Grega Kregar, Damijan Kracina, Mojca Senegačnik, Katarina K. Toman, and Sara Hughes. Before dawn, the group gathered for a game of basketball on one hoop in the semi-rural suburbs of Ljubjana, where church bells ring in the evening. The work establishes a relationship between body movement, spending free time, and professional careers. A dynamic camera follows the players, often zooming in. The footage is unedited. Every score is accompanied by information about the scorer. In professional sports, this is the opportunity to present statistics on the success of the athlete, while with the members of the informal artistic gathering, witty statements about the person, their characteristics and details from their professional and private lives are displayed. In the end, the female members of the team are presented.
