Home Court

Directed by Erica Tanamachi

CAAM-funded Home Court is a story of an All-American baller Ashley Chea following her pursuit of college level hoop dreams. In the three years this film follows her, we witness the highs and lows of her Cambodian immigrant family’s experiences in America. The film opens in Ashley’s sophomore year of high school. She shuttles between her home in a lower income neighborhood in Los Angeles and her private school, Flintridge Prep, while traveling to youth basketball tournaments and visiting colleges around the country. Ashley’s parents work long hours at their donut shop, so her coach, Jayme Kiyomura Chan, steps in where they cannot— taking Ashley to doctor visits and getting her driver’s permit. Despite the demands of her high school basketball career, Ashley’s humor sweeps us up while her skills on the court inspires the support of everyone in the stands and beyond.

Expected Guests in Attendance: Director Erica Tanamachi, Producer Jenn Lee Smith, and Writer/Editor Jean Kawahara
