This documentary of the Portland Trailblazers’ championship year will screen at the Clinton Street Theater Oct. 24-29. Matt Love writes about Fast Break , made by late Portland filmmaker Don Zavin, in his On Oregon blog at www.powells.com.
Fast Break belongs to the “lost to popular consumption” sub category of lost films. This screening testifies that at least one print of Fast Break survives.
I hereby claim Fast Break as an Oregon film, qualifying under the old definition (shot in Oregon) and the new (Don Zavin, Oregon director).
