Golden Bears/Horwood Documentary

This sounds like a very good project by Chris Horwood, son of former Bears coach Don Horwood and a very good player for Alberta in his own right earlier this decade. Chris Horwood began filming this feature-length documentary about the Golden Bears basketball team in September, 2008. Narrated by sports broadcasting legend John Short, the film features Golden Bears film footage from all across Canada supported a full soundtrack by local Alberta musicians. The film will show locally in Edmonton on the 5th and 13th of October and DVDs will be for sale after the event on the 5th. To obtain your own copy of the DVD, contact Chris via email at cab2pro@gmail.com . The last time I recall any Canadian men's basketball program being chronicled in a similar manner was an excellent multi-part series about 10 years ago on the Humber Hawks that featured Coach Mike Katz and touched on the lives of several student/athletes in Toronto and their challenges on and off the court... For this project by Chris Horwood, we look forward to the DVD and the unravelling the mystery as to whether or not new Alberta head man Greg Francis will be making his Hollywood debut in this film.
