Director: Rami Katz
(34 min)
Finding Big Country
Director: Kathleen S. Jayme
(44 min)

Finding Big Country: The Vancouver Grizzlies’ inglorious six-year NBA history may’ve lacked for highlights but it undeniably had a poster boy: Bryant “Big Country” Reeves, the centre whose less-than-sculpted man-mountain frame made him an easy target for criticism, if not outright derision. Documentarian Kathleen S. Jayme sets out to track down her hard-luck hero who has become infamously reclusive since he was forced into early retirement by injuries. (It’s tragically poetic that Reeves never played another game after the Grizzlies’ relocated to Memphis in 2001.) As Kathleen shares details of her own complex relationship with basketball, it becomes evident just how much she has personally invested in this search. Peoples’ Choice Award winner at VIFF 2018.
