14 Pews presents Swim Team
World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, and 14 Pews is recognizing this by screening the award-winning documentary, Swim Team. After the screening there will be an engaging talk-back with the film’s director, Lara Stolman, and also special guests.
Demonstrating the power of inclusion to transcend disability, Lara Stolman's triumphant film profiles members of the Jersey Hammerheads, a competitive swim team made up of a diverse group of teens on the autism spectrum, based in the state with the highest rate of autism in the country. Through training and competition, star athletes Mikey, Robbie and Kelvin gain self-confidence and social skills that serve them both in and out of the pool.
