AIR offers a rare glimpse into the story of basketball legend Michael Jordan who served as the inspiration for the iconic Air Jordan sneakers. The film offers a unique perspective on the creation of the iconic shoe and the inception of sneaker culture that followed. Interestingly, the film doesn’t show Michael’s face. Commenting about the same, Ben revealed that it was on purpose. He said, “I just thought, if you show somebody, you try to pretend, you tell them, this is Michael Jordan because he’s so iconic and means so much, immediately you know it’s a lie and what’s more interesting is that the way our heroes, these gods, kind of operate in our lives is not in our day-to-day lives, but we see them, You see him on footage in-game films. But you know, they’re not in real life. They’re larger than life and the audience brings their imagination and memory to it.”
Directed by Ben Affleck, and from Amazon Studios, Skydance Sports, Mandalay Pictures, and the first project from Affleck and Matt Damon’s Artists Equity, AIR is currently streaming on Prime Video.
