The documentary feature, A Most Beautiful Thing, chronicles the first African American high school rowing team in America. The story begins in the most surprising of places, the West Side of Chicago, where a group of young men (many from rival gangs) came together in the same boat, rocking the affluent world of crew. 

Narrated and executive produced by Common, a Grammy, Oscar and Emmy award-winning artist, executive produced by NBA Stars Grant Hill and Dwyane Wade along with Grammy-winning producer 9th Wonder and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio. 

The documentary will be released in March 2020 at AMC Theatres in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Boston, Oakland, Philadelphia, Miami, and Washington DC.
