UNFINISHED BUSINESS

New York, Documentary, LGBTQIA, Sports, Black & African American Diaspora Stories

In 1997, the National Basketball Association made history by establishing its women’s division, the WNBA. The New York Liberty was the first team to be created in this new league, its ranks bolstered by stars such as Rebecca Lobo and Kym Hampton. Although their first year saw massive success, they, along with other fiercely athletic and accomplished WNBA teams, have faced major obstacles ranging from homophobia to sexism in their path to legitimacy. These obstacles to both the Liberty and the WNBA as a whole are brought to a new light as the new team begins its 2021 season.

Timely and staggering in more ways than one, Unfinished Business is an intimate look at the WNBA, interweaving the rich, untold quarter-century history of this groundbreaking league with the New York Liberty’s dramatic 2021 season. This documentary is essential in a time when women’s sports are fighting to become better recognized, compensated, and respected among a sports-loving public. --Cara Cusumano
