Watch Brittney Griner’s in ESPN Short Film Documentary

1.7K 1

Lesbian athlete, Brittney Griner is the subject of a new short film by ESPN. The documentary shows her journey to China to play basketball during the Phoenix Mercury’s off-season.

This short film is an extension of ESPN’s feature-length, Emmy-nominated, ‘Nine for IX’ series that premiered last summer. The ‘Nine for IX’ series focused on captivating stories of women in sports told through the lens of female filmmakers. The first film, Venus Vs., premiered on July 2, 2013.

Brittney Griner, who came out last year, traveled to China for her inaugural season with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls. Traveling overseas to play basketball during the off-season is a rite of passage for many WNBA players, and this film chronicles not only Griner’s journey, but also her transformation form ‘a celebrated kid with unlimited potential to a self-reliant adult with a deep inner capacity to make her championship dreams a reality’
