        Racing the Rez Documentary

        In these videos, students follow five teens living on the Navajo and Hopi reservations in the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona. Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools put it all on the line for tribal pride, triumph over personal adversity, and state championship glory. Win or lose, what they learn in the course of their seasons, will have a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives. Racing the Rez unfolds over two years of careful, patient observation, and offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life.
