Just in Time for the Return of Basketball Season Comes Return to the Rafters

Return to the Rafters is a unique chronicle of the Celtics’ efforts to bring their present and future in line with their past. With the passing of Red Auerbach in 2006, General Manager Danny Ainge and Head Coach Doc Rivers were left to navigate the course back to the place that Auerbach’s Celtics knew so well. The film uses archival audio of Auerbach to frame the pressure these two men face, and they themselves discuss the pressure that wears visibly on their faces. Off court scenes of the players give a rare look at the team as it tries to become a cohesive unit. The apprehension that is borne out of a quarter century of disappointments is captured in the eyes and words of the team’s fans, new and old alike, who have been starved of the taste of championship on which they were weaned.

From the makers of Still, We Believe, Return to the Rafters tells the compelling story of a team that must overcome not only its opponents, but also its own legacy to return to Championship form.
