“The Other Dream Team” documentary about Lithuania’s 1992 Barcelona Olympics basketball team coming to U.S. screens–from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival

So exciting–I just read that “The Other Dream Team,” the 2012 Sundance Film Festival documentary about Lithuania’s 1992 Barcelona Olympics basketball team, will open in theatres Friday, Sept. 28. So far, I can’t see that it’s coming to a theatre near us, but if anyone out there can lobby for it, please do. This is very exciting stuff: the intertwined stories of Lithuania’s independence and Olympic hopes, financed by the basketball-loving Grateful Dead. Remember those tie-died jerseys in the medal ceremony–and all our basketball heroes: Marciulionis, Sabonis, Kurtinaitis?
I’ve also ordered the DVD from Neflix, with no delivery date yet. I’d like to have a home showing when we can get it. Please advise if anyone sees it at a theatre in or around central Illinios.
