Sisters on Track

Feature | Norway, United States | 94 MINUTES | English | English subtitles

A coming-of-age story set in New York, Sisters on Track is about hope, belonging, and the metaphorical and literal sisterhood of young athletes Tai, Rainn, and Brooke Sheppard. Excelling in their Junior High School Track and Field team while living in a homeless shelter with their single mother Tonia, they were chosen in 2016 to be the Sports Illustrated Kids of the Year. The film follows the sisters for two years as they navigate sudden fame and come into their own as young adults and athletes, guided by coach Jean Bell.

By the artists Corinne van der Borch and Tone Grøttjord-Glenne, this poignant film offers a rare and intimate portrait into a Brooklyn family’s journey to recover from trauma with the help of a loving family, supportive community, and their own achievements. —Frederic Boyer
