OFF THE REZ
OFF THE REZ. The film follows Shoni Schimmel, then a high-school junior living on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Oregon and the star basketball player on the local team. When Shoni’s mother, Ceci Moses, goes against the wishes of her community and takes a job coaching a high-school team in Portland, then the course of Shoni and her family’s lives are changed forever. This compelling documentary chronicles Shoni’s senior year and reveals the struggle that mother and daughter face to keep their hoop dreams alive and prove that Native American women can become champions off the Rez.
