Director Paul Geusebroek has created this short film to promote a recent project by Pigalle Paris which pledges to support local basketball teams in the city.
For its first initiative in the project, Pigalle, a boutique clothing store, is providing clothing for its local team, Goutte d’Or Basketball from nearby Barbès. This film was shot in the neighbourhood and features members of the team. Below is the director’s cut; another version, without the words, is here.
The project is supported by Nike Stadium Paris and Nike Stadium New York.
Director: Paul Geusebroek

Thanks for visiting the CR website, but if you are not also reading CR in print you’re missing out. Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing “from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness”.
