The Project

VIERZEHNEINHALB – a transmedia project about Wheelchair users, ABs and everything what’s in between.

The film project VIERZEHNEINHALB joins the wheelchair basketball team of the BG Baskets Hamburg over the 17/18 season. A story about way more than sport.
Nine players, seven different countries and countless of unique stories. But how does those different characters become a team? The single players with his or her own moving backgrounds have to build a unit, because cohesion only makes them capable of success. Get to know the athletes and join them on their challange.

You can get to know the players and join their experiences and be part of the team on and off court through our webdocumentary on or our social media sites on Facebook or Instagram. How does the players live all together in the Baskets’ appartment. What kind of friendship and conflict does evolve between the players? And how does the two women hold up and compete in the rough sport?

The EPISODES tell the stories and deliver awesome insights into the great sport and the everyday life of the basketball pro’s. You like parachute jumps, pull-ups in the wheelchair and trickshots?
When the Baskets show what they’ve got you may find it in the CLIPS section.
In the NEWS you find the latest stuff on the team and the film project.
TEAM&PLAYERS is the section where you find the players’ back stories and their episodes.

In the beginning of August, right before the wheelchair basketball World Championships, VIERZEHNEINHALB is on German TV. In a 40-minute documentary you get to know even more about the protagonists.

After the World Championships – the wheelchair basketball highlight of the year – VIERZEHNEINHALB is going to be on the great screens. The 90-minute movie documentary also introduces the international players of the team and will be seen at inclusive screenings through Germany.

VIERZEHNEINHALB is a production by Close Distance Productions.
