ESPN's 30 for 30 to Air 'The High Five' Today

The gesture of the high five is not only popular within sports but is given as a sign of approval and celebration the world over. This 30 For 30 Short will explore the origins and nuances of the high five, bringing to life the unique legacy of the gesture and the story of one of its UnSung originators.

"The High Five," directed by Michael Jacobs, tell the story of Glenn Burke and his rise as a baseball prodigy, his time in the majors and the spontaneous "invention" of the gesture. Using this moment, the story then pivots to chronicle the simultaneous spread of the high five as both a celebratory and political gesture alongside Burke's professional and personal decline amidst rumors of his sexual orientation.

Previous films from the Emmy-nominated 30 For 30 Shorts series can all be viewed on Grantland.com. ESPN Films' 30 For 30 Shorts series is artfully crafted by Blue Moon.

Michael Jacobs is an award winning filmmaker whose 2007 feature documentary "Audience of One" won jury awards at SXSW, Silverdocs, and screened at the prestigious New Directors/New Films showcase before going on to theatrical release and a premiere on Sundance Channel.
