'Q Ball': Sports Documentary Executive Produced By Kevin Durant Explores What Basketball Means To Incarcerated Players

The trailer for FOX Sports Films’ latest film in their “Magnify” series, Q Ball, has been released, showcasing the lives of incarcerated basketball players at San Quentin State Prison. The film is executive produced by Thirty Five Media, the production company owned by NBA superstar Kevin Durant. Also executive producing are HEIST and Hunting Lane Films.

The Michael Tolajian film focuses on Durant and his Warriors teammates visiting San Quentin State Prison, where a basketball team plays not just for points, but for redemption and reclamation.

According to the official description: “In the film, across the Bay from the NBA champions, there is another Warriors team – one that plays only home games. Director Michael Tolajian’s documentary, which got started during early visits by Durant and his fellow Warriors team members to San Quentin State, explores inmates’ personal struggles as they search for redemption and transcendence both on and off the court. The answers, characters, and stories are complex, but in San Quentin – a place where freedom is taken away – basketball gives a little bit back.”

The film will air on FS1 May 28 at 9 p.m. EST. Before its airdate, it’ll debut in theaters in Los Angeles’ Laemmle Music Hall May 17-23 and New York’s Cinema Village May 24-30.
