Brittani’s Team Pick:
It’s been a while since we checked in with No Look Pass and in that time the documentary has been selected for a ton of festivals. The film boasts two Audience Awards and picked up Best Documentary at the Honolulu Rainbow Festival. The doc is now available on Showtime Women, Showtime Next, and iTunes.
NO LOOK PASS is the coming-of-age American Dream story of Emily “Etay” Tay, a first generation Burmese immigrant from Chinatown, Los Angeles, who breaks all of the rules of tradition. After living a double life at Harvard University, she strives to play professional basketball in Germany while coming out as a lesbian. Emily’s dreams are no slam dunk — family, race, and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell conspire against her, firing her passions on and off the court.
