About Twice as Nice

Year Released:

Jessie Maple’s Twice as Nice follows twins Caren and Camilla Parker, both star players on a college women’s basketball team energized by the prospect of a first female pick in the upcoming “MBA” draft. Maple’s humanist concern with the strength of community and family emerges again here, as in her first feature, the groundbreaking Will (1981). Maple’s cast features legends of NCAA, Olympic, and WNBA basketball, including Cynthia Cooper and twins Pamela and Paula McGee. Preserved by the Black Film Center/Archive with support from the National Film Preservation Foundation. This screening is sponsored by the Black Film Center/Archive, The Media School, the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies, and IU Cinema.  Director Jessie Maple and Co-Producer/Cinematographer Leroy Patton are scheduled to be present.
