Killer Bees drops us into the world of the renowned Bridgehampton basketball team as they prepare to defend their state championship title. The team provides hope and inspiration, fueled by pride and tradition, for an African-American community struggling in the midst of one of the wealthiest communities in America.
Ben and Orson Cummings are brothers, former Bridgehampton students themselves, who said that basketball was the lens through which they were able to examine such issues as race, income inequality, gentrification, the criminal justice system, politics, education, and a seasonal economy. The brothers also produced If I Didn’t Care, Blood in the Water and Pacific Standard Time.
