The Marousi Wheelchair Basketball team allows a film crew to trail them on their practices, their games and while they’re on the go during the 2018-19 sports season. Through various interviews, the team members enlighten the audience about their sport, the conditions under which it is conducted in Greece and the way they interact with their wheelchairs in a documentary that observes the dynamics between space, body and technology within the context of the special conditions in basketball.

The wheelchair basketball team of the Maroussi-Athletic Association of Physically Handicapped People allowed a film crew to follow its proceedings, from training to games and transports for 2018-19 season. In the meantime, the members of the team were interviewed regarding the sport, the conditions under which it takes place in Greece and their interaction with the wheelchair.
The result is ‘No Heroes’, which is mainly an observation exercise on the dynamic relationship of space, body and technology, in wheelchair basketball. As wheelchair sports in Greece do not enjoy great publicity, the documentary focuses on the basic level of assemblage, hoping that observation will turn to viewpoint on the big screen.
