Lara Stolman's feature documentary Swim Team, a film festival audience favorite, chronicles the rise of a competitive swim team in New Jersey made up of diverse teenagers on the autism spectrum.

With its triumphant story of how inclusion transcends differences, groups expected to give a boost to theatrical release in New York, Los Angeles and select major cities.


"Swim Team" is a feature documentary chronicling the rise of a competitive swim team made up of teenagers on the autism spectrum.

Based in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, the cast of Swim Team is largely Latino and Asian, minorities that are underrepresented in competitive swimming and underserved in autism intervention and education.

The film follows three of the team's star athletes, boys on the cusp of adulthood as they face a future of exclusion and dependence.

But everything changes when they come together as a team with parent coaches who train them with high expectations and zero pity.

As the team vies for state and national Special Olympics championships, Swim Team captures a moving quest for inclusion, independence and a life that feels winning.

NOW PLAYING – OPENED TODAY: JULY 7
AT IFC CENTER IN NEW YORK CITY
&
OPENS JULY 21 IN LOS ANGELES AT LAEMMLE MONICA FILM CENTER
