A Look At The New KU Basketball Film, 'Jayhawkers'

Nov 8, 2013

KU basketball had a different sort of atmosphere back in the 1950s. In addition to some Phog, one of the things that changed the weather there was a certain player called Wilt Chamberlain.

Kevin Willmott's latest film is 'Jayhawkers.'

On Friday's Up to Date, we talk with local filmmaker Kevin Willmott about his newest movie, Jayhawkers, that takes a look at the Chamberlain era and how it changed KU forever. 


  • Kevin Willmott's films include Planet Negro, C.S.A: Confederate States Of America and The Battle for Bunker Hill. He is an associate professor in film studies at the University of Kansas.
