Summary
On June 12, 1970, Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates -- while high on LSD. Dock was often embroiled in controversy on and off the field. Coming up in the 1960s, while professional baseball hadn't fully embraced racial equality, he was an outspoken leader who lived the expression "Black is Beautiful!" His fearlessness enabled him to become one of the most intimidating pitchers of the 70s and a trailblazer for a new wave of civil rights. Through intimate stories and a trove of archival footage, NO NO: A DOCKUMENTARY brings Dock's vibrant life to light, burnishing the legend and revealing the man behind it. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the **Sundance Film Festival**. Nominated for the Audience Award for Festival Favorite at the **SXSW Film Festival**. *"Critics Pick! As this smart and sympathetic profile shows, Dock Ellis didn't need a no-hitter, stoned or otherwise, to define himself; he was his own best work." - Daniel M. Gold, **The New York Times***
