Executive Produced by Academy Award-winning artist, Common, along with NBA stars Grant Hill and Dwyane Wade, and Grammy-winning producer 9th Wonder,  this new documentary film from award-winning filmmaker, Mary Mazzio, chronicles the first African American high school rowing team in this country (made up of young men, many of whom were in rival gangs from the West Side of Chicago, all coming together to row in the same boat). This project explores not only the safety these young men found on the water, but the trauma of violence and cyclical poverty, examining how these young men were able to support each other in reimagining a different future for themselves, and how rowing and the water provided the backdrop for that opportunity. These young men came together, after 20 years out of the boat, to race this past summer, not only to celebrate the team’s founding but the fact that they are still alive.  This is their story.
