Award-winning filmmaker Peter Nicks (The Waiting Room, Festival 2012; The Force, Festival 2016; Homeroom, 2021) returns with another rousing documentary about a Bay Area institution. This time his camera turns to the celebrated and singular iconography of NBA superstar Stephen Curry. Intertwining Curry’s emergence on the court at North Carolina’s Davidson College with thrilling footage of the 2021-22 Golden State Warriors season when the team won its fourth championship of the Curry era, Nicks deftly builds a portrait of a man who continually defies expectations. In addition to career-defining moments on and off court, Nicks also explores Curry’s academic ambitions and familial bonds. With unique access, heart-pounding edits, and electrifying footage, Underrated tells the remarkable story of a local legend.

Special Thanks
