The critically appraised independent feature film "American Streetballers" (the highest-scoring film in the 17-year history of the Saint Louis International Film Festival beating out previous winners "Juno" and "Slumdog Millionaire"), is an Irish-Urban Drama that explores the lives of two junior college basketball players, Jacob Whitmore and John Hogan. The film descends into the underworld of city culture and streetball, an unconventional form of basketball where the rules are as unpredictable as the players. With both characters struggling to find sanity amidst a world of drugs, alcoholism and racism, two worlds collide revealing a story of hope, transformation and friendship that lead to a challenge on the courts of the city’s tough Northside. With a message of Hoops, Hustle & Hope "American Streetballers" has been named “The Greatest Basketball Film Ever Made” by streetball legends and NBA players alike.

"Plot: Simply put, strong. Encompassing much, utilizing twist, turns and subplots strongly, Streetballers will have your full attention throughout.

“Last weekend, the locally produced sports movie Streetballers cracked the national top ten at the box office. According to Variety the film averaged more than $5700 per screen, ranking it ninth in the country, ahead of G.I.
