The Harlem Globetrotters: The Team That Changed the World (2005) is a blue-sky promotional documentary about the glory days (shown in fleeting archival clips) of the Globetrotters basketball team. Indeed, the group's current owner, Mannie Jackson, repeatedly weighs in on their cultural and historical significance. The film's talking-heads interviews range from former team members to "Honorary Globetrotter" Henry Kissinger. Barack Obama, at the time a Senator, adds to the mix of celebrities who recall the Globetrotter magic.
