On April 8, 2019, the University of Michigan will take part in The Rebound’s campaign to create more inclusion in society.  The acclaimed film The Rebound (76 mins) offers an insider’s perspective to adapted sports and the world of disability as it follows 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 (Click to see the Trailer here). 

The film has been an official selection at more than twenty film festivals and fifty special screenings, received numerous awards, and has been piloted successfully in schools and university research studies. Critics say, “Here is a rare breed of documentary that often uses images instead of words to tell its story.” – Miami Herald and “you’ll never think about disabilities the same way again.” – No Film School.

The purpose of this event is to foster meaningful discussion around inclusion, celebrate the power of the thriving human spirit, and introduce the growing adaptive sports programming occurring at The University of Michigan, because #itsallabouthowyourebound.

Featuring a Q&A session with Ryan Martin, moderated by Dr. Feranmi Okanlami following the film.
