Knickerbocker glory.

New York Knicks: “The New New York” - 60s

New York has always been known for its unique attitude and irascible population, and despite the best efforts of the coronavirus this dynamic film shows there's fight in the ol' girl yet. Two-time NBA champions the Knicks celebrate the city's unquenchable character in stark black and white, as residents assure us that the New York spirit is in no way diminished by circumstance.

The city’s essence is deftly evoked here, as directors Henry & Rel weave a passion for sport and hometown pride through each character vignette. While tabloids may scream about the city being in irrevocable decline, this spirited missive makes it clear that while NYC may be bowed, it's not going down without a hell of a fight.
