The Mad Russian

We are so excited about this slam-dunk documentary! UptownWorks is now helping to develop and color correct this promissing feature that will zoom in on the life of former NBA All-Star, Tom Meschery.

Tom Meschery is an athlete, poet, teacher, and survivor. From an early age, Tom knew what it was like to be treated as an outsider. He is of Russian descent, born in Manchuria, raised shortly in an internment camp in Tokyo and finally immigrated to America. Eager to fit in, he desperately searched for ways to become more “American” and soon discovered that basketball provided this and much more.
