DOXA Highlights

For anyone who ever dreamed of glory on the b-ball court. Well, perhaps not glory, but just basic competence, here come the Pistol Shrimps! A moribund women’s intramural basketball league in Los Angeles is the unlikely setting for a Hoosiers-style sports story, but stranger things have happened in the City of Angels. As actress and Shrimps team member Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) explains in an interview with Jimmy Fallon: “We’re a really serious basketball team. We love to ball and we ball hard. No Hatrz allowed!”

In the BASE jumping world, jumps are known as “exits.” First-person photography of Ellen Brennan, one of the most preeminent wingsuit BASE jumpers in the world, flying off one cliff after another is a pulse-pounding spectacle to behold, but filmmaker Kristoffer Hegnsvad offers an equally compelling philosophical angle on the life of this remarkable athlete.

Superstar architect Bjarks Ingel’s designs have set a new standard for innovation, invention, as well as a little bit of eccentricity. But at the heart of one of his most iconic design projects is a very simple idea — community.
