How The Boomers Made History.
Matthew Adekponya’s feature debut is a clear three-pointer: not only a behind-the-scenes look at how the Boomers achieved their first ever international medal, but also the story of basketball in the country and a thrilling account of mateship that saw Australia held up on the world stage. Former pro-basketballer, Adekponya weaves BTS footage from his years embedded with the team, with exclusive interviews from coaches, commentators and a star-studded line-up of Australian and NBA players (including Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Andrew Gaze, Andrew Bogut & Matisse Thybulle). Rose Gold, with creative consultation from Kriv Stenders (Australia Day, MIFF 2017; Red Dog, MIFF 2011) and Allan Clarke (Dark Emu, SFF 2023; Australian Story: Blood On The Tracks 2018), is an unmissable, insiders view of an unforgettable moment in Australian sport, and the never-say die determination that brought the nation’s team to glory.
