Rakuten TV launches Serge Ibaka basketball doc

By 22nd June 2020 No Comments

Basketball doc will be available on free-to-air from 25 June.

Rakuten TV is releasing documentary Anything Is Possible, about global basketball star Serge Ibaka. The film, which will be available for free from 25 June, provides insight into the life of the NBA’s Toronto Raptors player.

Anything Is Possible focuses on Ibaka’s life story and humanitarian work.

He grew up in The Congo and through talent, determination, perseverance and self-believe went on to establish himself as a world-renowned basketball player, playing across Europe and in the USA, and winning the NBA championship in 2019.

He launched his own charity foundations, which helps young people from deprived backgrounds with their health and education and offer opportunities through the sports arm of the foundation. All of this is also covered in the documentary.

Anything Is Possible is a co-pro by Uninterrupted Films and Ouenzé Entertainment.

It will be released on Rakuten TV’s free section, Rakuten Stories channel.

Serge Ibaka said: “I wanted to tell my story in a different way. The NBA trophy is a symbol of what I always preach; that anything is possible. This is why this documentary couldn’t have any other title. I am now an NBA champion but I will never forget where I come from, and my journey has been hard to believe. I will be especially proud if I can inspire at least one kid, in Congo or anywhere in the world, to give his all for a dream.”

Teresa López, Rakuten TV European content director added: “The documentary is a fascinating insight into a journey of determination and self-belief to achieve a dream, and how that determination is being used to help others live a better life and follow their dreams. We know viewers will love it as much as we do.”
