Dan Klores’ new docu “Black Magic” will premiere at a benefit screening for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, N.C. on Feb. 11. While the fest will host the theatrical version, ESPN will run the full doc as a four-hour, commercial-free two-parter.
“Black Magic” is about the lives of black basketball players during the civil rights movement. Samuel L. Jackson and Wynton Marsalis contribute as narrators.
Basketball legends Earl Monroe and Al Attles will attend the screening with Klores.
Klores’ last film, “Crazy Love,” was acquired at Sundance 2007 by Magnolia.
Full Frame runs April 3-6.
