Documentary airs Jan. 11 on OPB

A reminder that “Big Dreams in Umatilla” will premiere on OPB at 9 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 11, with a repeat on Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. on OPB Plus. It will also be available to stream on the PBS app and at watch.opb.org.

The documentary by Blue Chalk Media was filmed over the course of 2016, and follows Umatilla High School’s robotics team of that year through their competition season.

“Though the robotics team was an important catalyst for change, this documentary is not about robots,” a news release from Blue Chalk Media states. “It’s about inspiration and reality, a school superintendent who refuses to see limits, a community that invests in its schools, and kids who excel no matter the odds.”
