Special Screening Of “Killer Bees” At Cinema Arts Centre
As part of the “Community Connections” series, Cinema Arts Centre will be holding a special screening of Killer Bees on Monday, December 3rd at 7:30 PM. An inspirational documentary film, produced by Shaquille O’Neal, that follows the boys’ basketball team at historically black Bridgehampton High School as they compete for the state championship. The screening will feature a Q&A with the film’s directors Benjamin and Orson Cummings, who will be attending the screening.
Killer Bees tells the story of the legendary basketball team from Bridgehampton High School that defies stereotypes of The Hamptons. Led by their inspirational coach, Carl Johnson, the Bees prepare to defend their state championship. The fighting spirit they display on the court has become a symbol of hope for a historic African-American community struggling to survive racial discrimination, gentrification and absurd incoming inequality in one of the wealthiest districts in the country.
