Wynwood independent theater O Cinema is in the middle of a retrospective of the first ten years of filmmaking by rakontur, the Miami-based media studio that broke out in 2006 with Cocaine Cowboys. The retro continues on Wednesday with a screening of an extended version of The U, a documentary that rakontur made for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series about the Miami Hurricanes’ dominance and “Bad Boys” behavior in the ’80s. Here, co-founder Billy Corben reflects on a scene that did not make it into the film’s final cut.
