SELECT INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITIES WITH LENNY COOKE, JOAKIM NOAH, DIRECTORS JOSH & BENNY SAFDIE

Opening in theaters on December 6th, LENNY COOKE was a stand-out at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival where it had its world premiere.  
In 2001, Lenny Cooke was the most hyped high school basketball player in the country, ranked above future greats LeBron James, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony.  A decade later, Lenny has never played a minute in the NBA.  In this quintessentially American documentary, filmmaking brothers Joshua and Benny Safdie take a candid look and track the unfulfilled destiny of a man for whom superstardom was only out of reach.
LENNY COOKE marks the first feature length documentary by the Safdie brothers, who received the John Cassavetes Award at The Independent Spirit Awards for DADDY LONGLEGS.   DADDY LONGLEGS premiered at the Cannes Film Festival as did their first feature THE PLEASURE OF BEING ROBBED.  
The film was executive produced by two time NCAA champion and Chicago Bull Joakim Noah.
A stand-out at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, LENNY COOKE premiered to critical praise.

Shopkorn Productions and Brigade will release LENNY COOKE theatrically in New York on December 6th, 2013
