From Deep is a feature-length experimental documentary about the game of basketball and its shifting place within 20th century American history and culture; focusing on the evolution of basketball from its indoor New England roots, to a Midwestern small town phenomenon, to an outdoor city game, with particular emphasis on its merger with hip hop in the mid-1980s and the rise of Michael Jordan as the world's first corporate branded athlete.
