This revamped, never-before-seen version of the film features new graphics, photos, music, visual effects, evidence, archive footage and new interviews with Sonics Legend Shawn Kemp and Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament.
So even if you've watched the two-hour Director's Cut multiple times online, you will get something new out of this version. We can't wait to show you and share this story with a national audience!

Aaron Levine of Q It Up Sports calls the CNBC premiere
"an absolute must see event." Set your DVRs and stay tuned...
Director Jason Reid and producer Adam Brown were also interviewed for an episode of the show Sports Biz on NBC Sports Network that airs this Friday, April 27 at 9:30pm Pacific. Check it out after the premiere of "Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team" and the NHL hockey playoff games.
Between this news and the generous Chris Hansen arena proposal, momentum is at an all-time high for bringing an NBA team back to restore the legacy of the Sonics.
We sincerely appreciate everyone who helped the cause along the way by contributing content to the movie, donating on Kickstarter, spreading the word, covering it in media and keeping hope alive.
