Synopsis

The First Slam Dunk delves into the lives of the Shohoku High School club, a talented but dysfunctional basketball team, as they take on Sannoh High School, who are known as the best team in the country. Each of the players have their own complicated history but none more so than point guard Ryota Miyagi, who is still coming to terms with the death of his older brother, himself an admired basketball prospect, along with the strained relationship he has with his mother. As the game moves into full gear, the emotions, skills and camaraderie of Shohoku team help them push Sannoh all the way – but will it be enough to see them victorious? Based on a much-loved manga from the 1990s, this Japanese anime is both an epic sports drama and an intimate character piece that digs into themes of loss, friendship and the importance of communication.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
