Oceans of Pink
About This Episode
Oceans of Pink is an inspirational documentary that highlights the explosive growth of dragon boat racing among breast cancer survivors globally, and the growing participation in the sport among Hispanic women. The film follows the efforts of Miami boat leader and breast cancer survivor Kim Bonomo to expand the movement with new teams throughout Florida, and her campaign to make the state the host of the Fourth International Participatory Dragon Boat Festival.
It's an emotional journey that tells the stories of several Latina women; their stories speak to a widespread problem in the Hispanic population: women tend to seek breast scans much later than other groups, preventing early detection. Oceans of Pink builds to the international race event in Sarasota, Florida, where thousands of survivors from around the globe celebrate the sisterhood of dragon boaters.
