Checkitout: ‘The Gray Seasons’ – Sunday, Oct. 30 at the Offshoot Film Fest


With a new Razorback hoops season just getting started, one particular film at this week’s Offshoot Film Fest caught our attention simply because it’s about basketball.

After watching the trailer, the film looks excellent.

And, as it turns out, Fayetteville is home to John C. Kelley, the documentary’s original music composer who is finishing his MFA in drawing/painting at the University of Arkansas.

Robert Herrera’s “The Gray Seasons” follows the Saint Louis University women’s basketball team through its first four seasons under new head coach Shimmy Gray-Miller, an optimistic youngster brought in to turn things around for the longstanding, unsuccessful program.

Check out the trailer (embedded below) then see the entire film at the Offshoot Film Fest at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30 in the UA Global Campus just off the Fayetteville square.

After that, head over to Bud Walton Arena for the annual Razorback Red-White game at 3 p.m.

Individual film tickets are $7 each (at the door), or grab a full festival pass for $35 at the Offshoot website.
