 Early Video On Demand Window Begins December 21

"A sports film to remember" - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

"A rousing look at a remarkable story" - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine


Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, the moving and inspirational basketball documentary, The Other Dream Team arrives on DVD and Digital Download January 15th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The Other Dream Team will also be available three weeks prior to the DVD release with a December 21 Video on Demand premiere date. Written by Jon Weinbach andMarius A. Markevicius (who also directed), the film documents the Lithuanians' experiences behind the Iron Curtain for 50 years, where elite athletes were subjected to brutalities of Communist rule. As they hid from KGB agents and feared for their lives, Lithuania's basketball stars always shared a common goal - to utilize their athletic gifts to help free their country.  The film features the original members of the 1992 basketball team as well as interviews with American sports figures Bill Walton, Bob Costas and Jim Lampley. The DVD special features include a Q&A as well as an audio commentary with the director and writer of the documentary. The Other Dream Team DVD will beavailable for the suggested retail price of $24.98.

The incredible story of the 1992 Lithuanian basketball team, whose athletes struggled under Soviet rule, became symbols of Lithuania's independence movement, and - with help from the Grateful Dead - triumphed at the Barcelona Olympics.
