Watch Trailer For Doc 'Free Throw' (A Different Side To Compton); National Release In November

From filmmaker Court Crandall comes the inspirational feature documentary, Free Throw, for which we’ve been provided the trailer, poster and a few photos for, ahead of its upcoming release.

Claiming to show a different side to the people of Compton, the synopsis for Free Throw reads:

We live in a world full of lines that divide us — Racial. Financial. Religious. But what if there was one line that brought us all together? A line we didn’t just stand on, but for. A line painted on the ground that showed us all just how high we can reach. Free Throw follows eight students at Compton High School as they participate in a free throw shooting contest for $40,000 college scholarship. As we learn about these amazing boys and girls, what starts as a competition gradually becomes collaboration and we discover that America’s true role models may come from a very unlikely zip code.

Free Throw will be released nationwide On-Demand starting November 1st, 2012!
