About The Rebound: A Wheelchair Basketball Story

Among the Heat Wheels, passion and drive are abundant, but the team’s dwindling checkbook threatens to cut short its attempt to win their first national championship. Athletes Mario, Jeremie, and Orlando rally their team through the season while confronting adversity on and off the court as the team pushes their way towards the title in the tension-riddled conclusion where they prove that no matter the challenges, it’s all about how you rebound that counts. [76 min; documentary; English]

"The Rebound follows the Miami Heat Wheels on their harrowing quest for a national championship. The sports action is dramatic, but the film’s power lies in its revelation of the personal tales of three players and the commitment they’ve made to be part of the team despite a multitude of challenges." — Liz Nord, No Film School

"Sure, you’ll feel moved by what they have accomplished, but what’s remarkable about this is how wheelchairs gently fade into the background, allowing the players to shape the story, as they should … and deserve." — David Duprey, That Moment In

"From the Miami aesthetic to the narrative composition, you can’t help but love the story being told." — Chanse Alexandra, FilmSnobReviews
