Finding Big Country

Screening Time

Friday, 24 May 2019 at 2:00 PM – BMO Sports Lounge

Synopsis

Former NBA player Bryant “Big Country” Reeves is known as one of the league’s biggest busts. He never lived up to his sixty million dollar contract with the ill-fated Vancouver Grizzlies and when his team relocated to Memphis after just six years, he vanished from the league. No one in Vancouver or the NBA has seen or heard from the big fella since he retired– he’s the only Vancouver Grizzly who never publicly commented on his time with the team. But one childhood fan, turned filmmaker, Kat Jayme has tracked Big Country down to a cattle ranch in his hometown Gans, Oklahoma and she’s dead set on breaking his silence.
