Go behind the scenes with iconic Australian sportsman Patty Mills and the Australian Basketball “Boomers” to understand what it takes to build a team culture capable of taking them to a history-making Olympic medal.

On 7 August 2021, the Australian men’s basketball team, the Boomers, defeated European powerhouse Slovenia 107–93 at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.

That win earned them a podium spot, behind the US and France, a ‘rose gold’ bronze medal that capped a decade of rebuilding and broke a 65-year streak of agonising near-misses.

Rose Gold is not only a behind-the-scenes look at how the Boomers achieved their first ever international medal, but also the story of basketball, long the outsider in a modern and diverse Australia.

First time feature director and former basketballer, Matthew Adekponya weaves behind-the-scenes footage from his years embedded with the team, with exclusive interviews from coaches, commentators, and a star-studded line-up of Australian and NBA players including Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Andrew Gaze, Andrew Bogut and Matisse Thybulle.

Rose Gold is an unmissable, insiders’-view of an unforgettable moment in Australian sport and a thrilling account of brotherhood that saw Australia held up on the world stage.
