Steve Nash is a very busy man. On top of being an All-Star point guard for the Phoenix Suns, Nash heads his own charitable foundation, he founded his own film production company, he has directed documentaries and has even tried his hand at soccer as a part owner of the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps. Nash, known for assisting others on the court, now gets some attention off the court.

The 90 second teaser trailer is vague; most of the trailer is of Nash either driving in his car, or shooting hoops. Aside from Owen Wilson, the only dialogue in the trailer is Steve Nash proposing thought provoking questions to himself.  The documentary debutes this week at the Vancouver International Film Festival

"Nash" will feature several guest interviews not typically associated with sports films including president Barack Obama, director Ron Howard and actor Owen Wilson as well as NBA icons such as Kobe Bryant, Yao Ming and Dirk Nowitzki.

 Footage in the documentary also includes Nash during the 2003 All-Star game, within a month of the Iraq War invasion.  Nash uses camera time to denounce the war and its human cost.  The guest commentary, on top of the fascinating life of Steve Nash, make this documentary a must watch for any sports fan.
