Details about the 2009 Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival have been released. The ESPN Films production of Spike Lee’s Kobe Doin’ Work will have its world premiere at the fest, which runs from April 22 to May 3, 2009. The gala premiere will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2009.
Kobe Doin’ Work takes an unprecedented look at NBA star Kobe Bryant. During the 2008 NBA playoffs, Lee and his cinematographer, Matthew Libatique, were given unlimited access to the Los Angeles Lakers superstar before, during and after a game. As a result, the film is a definitive portrait of one of the sport’s greatest athletes. The film also features the first score ever written by Grammy-winning musician Bruce Hornsby.
