POV: Swim Team
“More than just a heartening sports saga, Swim Team brings to light the systemic challenges confronting teenagers with developmental disabilities and their parents,” said Justine Nagan, executive producer/executive director of POV/American Documentary. “For too many, public resources and programs are either nonexistent or few and far between. In this film, we see how autism affects people of varied backgrounds, including those in communities of color and working-class families. Swim Team, with the stories of the Hammerheads and their parents, explores all of these issues and is a compelling, cheer-worthy sports film: a win-win for audiences all around.”
