Nike is no stranger to dramatic features of high-profile men at the top of their game (see Tiger Wood’s plea for forgiveness), but the Spike Lee Nike short film is a little less dramatic, and a little more genuine.

In the film, director Spike Lee recalls what he’s learned from his son as assistant coach of his soccer team. Filmed in black and white at the Sara D. Roosevelt Park field in Chinatown, New York, the essence of the short film, captured by director Jake Sumner, is genuinely Manhattan.
