ATTN: Tickets for the Friday night screening are SOLD OUT! but are still available for the Saturday and Sunday afternoon shows as of this update.

From Brazilian favelas to dusty Congolese villages, from neolithic Scottish isles to modern soccer pitches, BOUNCE explores the little­-known origins of our favorite sports. The film crosses time, languages and continents to discover how the ball has staked its claim on our lives and fueled our passion to compete. Equal parts science, history and cultural essay, BOUNCE removes us from the scandals and commercialism of today’s sports world to uncover the true reasons we play ball, helping us reclaim our universal connection to the games we love.

Inspired by the book, The Ball: Discovering the Object of the Game by John Fox

Screens at the Portland Museum of Art.  Followed by Q&A with Director Jerome Thelia, Screenwriter John Fox and Cinematographer David McLain.
