Academy Award winning director Steven Soderbergh debuts his latest film High Flying Bird at the Slamdance 2019 Film Festival. It will be released on Netflix February 8, 2019. Written by Oscar-winner Tarell Alvin McCraney the basic storyline takes place during a pro basketball lockout. A sports agent (starring Andre Holland) pursues a rookie basketball player (starring Melvin Gregg) to engage in a contract that is highly controversial but extremely interesting. It's a risky business proposition for both parties and the intense hours leading up to decisions needing to be made give a glimpse into the deal-making world of sports.
