How to watch ‘The Grizzlie Truth’: Times, tickets, showings for Vancouver Grizzlies documentary movie
The Grizzlies haven’t played in Vancouver for over 20 years. The former Canadian NBA team spent a short time in British Columbia before finally being sold in 2001 and relocating to Memphis.
Various factors are to blame for the failure of the Vancouver franchise, and that’s exactly what Canadian filmmaker Kat Jayme tries to unravel in her latest documentary, The Grizzlie Truth.
The documentary takes viewers behind the scenes of the Grizzlies franchise during their time in Vancouver. She interviews a variety of figures who were in and around the organization when the team was first announced as an expansion franchise and up until its sudden move.
Document members include former Grizzlies Bryant Reeves, Mike Bibby and Shareef Abdur-Rahim, SuperSonics star Shawn Kemp, former Grizzlies GM Stu Jackson and Steve Francis, drafted 2nd overall by Vancouver in 1999, but refused to play for the team.
This is Jayme’s second documentary to focus on Vancouver. Previously, in 2018, she released a document titled “Finding Big Country,” detailing the whereabouts of former Grizzlies player Bryant “Big Country” Reeves after his retirement.
