Artnet News Features Piece on Basketball Legend Shaquille O’Neal Signing On to Produce Film With Power Dealer Larry Gagosian
The Brothers Cummings documentary on the Killer Bees is in the news again. This time featured at Artnet News.
At first glance, it might seem like a strange pairing: Mega-gallerist Larry Gagosian signs on to produce a documentary about a local basketball team—with legendary NBA Lakers center Shaquille O’Neal?
It’s not as random as a collaboration as you might think, however. The film, Killer Bees, follows the Bridgehampton School basketball team in their quest to defend their 2015 state championship title.
According to the official synopsis, the documentary goes beyond the court and “explores how Bridgehampton’s African American community came to exist in the heart of the Hamptons and its struggle to survive.”
