Blazermaniacs young and old won’t want to miss this special screening of the rare 1978 documentary Fast Break, which features Bill Walton, Maurice Lucas, Jack Ramsey and the rest of the 1977 Championship team that captured the hearts of Portland fans. Evoking a cinema verite feel not found in most sports documentaries, Fast Break examines the 1977 Trailblazers in a surprisingly personal and compelling fashion. Inter-cutting excerpts from the 1977 playoff / championship season, the film steps outside of the basketball court, and into the everyday lives of the Trailblazers, as well as their coach Jack Ramsey. Whether it’s biking the Oregon coast with Bill Walton, hosting a kids basketball camp with Dave Twardzik, or joking with Maurice Lucas at the pool - Fast Break lets the players speak for themselves: about basketball, life and playing in Portland.
