Former NBA all-star Steve Nash set to executive produce documentary on era of legal ecstasy in 1980s Dallas
Former two-time MVP and all-star point guard Steve Nash is spending his newfound retirement as an executive producer for an upcoming indie film about rave culture and the origins of ecstasy and “Molly” in 1980s Dallas. Most people are unaware, but legal ecstasy in the early 80s ignited a cultural phenomenon in the Texan City from gay clubs to college fraternity parties. “Having played in Dallas for six years, I was drawn to this project for its relationship with the city,” said Nash. “After poring over the material I found an incredibly unique story with so many vibrant characters and a bold history known as the origin to the rave scene ecstasy culture. Its footprints are now all over the world.”
Nash will co-executive produce alongside Ezra Holland of Meathawk Productions as well as Prettybird Pictures. The film’s director, Dori Oskowitz, is a Grammy-nominated music video director for Jack White, Pharrell and Lenny Kravitz, and also directed the EDM documentary “Blackout” for Vice.
