Two wheelchair basketball players reach for a basketball above their heads.

THE REBOUND is an award-winning independent documentary (76 min) following the underdog journey of the Miami Heat Wheels wheelchair basketball team in their quest for their first NWBA National Championship. The cameras don’t stop when the players leave the court: the film follows the athletes through daily life with a disability as they reach for new heights.

From first-time Director and DP Shaina Allen, the movie has screened at more than twenty film festivals and fifty special screenings, received numerous awards, and has been piloted successfully in schools and university research studies.

Mission: We believe in a more inclusive world, one where all people have equal opportunities to participate in sport, regardless of their abilities. Using film, media and live experiences we strive to:

  • Increase awareness for wheelchair basketball and adapted sports
  • Promote inclusion and access to sports for people with physical disabilities 
  • Celebrate the power of the thriving human spirit, because #ItsAllAboutHowYoureBound!
