No Look Pass

.

Harvard student Emily ‘Etay’ Tay wants a career as a professional basketball player. But her Burmese parents, who fled to the United States with just $65 to their name, would rather see her as a devoted housewife.
Basketball is Etay’s ticket to a different future. But there’s more: she also happens to be a lesbian. This is no problem within her team – in fact, perhaps somewhat predictably, her girlfriend is a cheerleader – but how can she explain this at home? “When my mother finds out, she is going to destroy me”, Etay says.

Press

  • New York Times
    Melissa Johnson’s new documentary, “No Look Pass,” is alternately a basketball buddy film; a “Love Story” for modern
    times; and, as Ms. Magazine describes it, a feminist “Hoosiers.” But while the film is ultimately more American dream
    than “Hoop Dreams,” it does not fit neatly into any category
    Ken Plutnicki
  • Ms. Magazine
    No Look Pass successfully combines the thrills of a sports movie–it even includes a f-bomb-throwing coach, Kathy
    Delaney-Smith (who Johnson previously made a short film about)–with nuclear-family drama, a culture clash, a love
    story and even a rare celebration of female friendship. From a theoretical standpoint, it explores the intersectionality of
    gender, culture, sexual orientation and class. All in all, if you’re looking for a feminist Hoosiers, this is as close as it gets.
    Michele Kort
  • Huffington Post
    No Look Pass is a sensitive, nuanced, and heartrending examination of a young woman's personal and professional development in rarefied environments
