VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

"Lara Stolman's Swim Team is long enough to break and warm your heart in equal measure…" - NPR

"…Swim Team is edifying. It's a portrait of heartbreak, frustration and triumph, sometimes for the swimmers, and sometimes for their moms and dads." - LA Weekly

3.5 out of 4 stars
“ … this is a poignant and inspiring documentary carrying a powerful message … Highly recommended." – Video Librarian
