The long awaited documentary of Shoni Schimmel’s documentary “Off the Rez”, produced by Jonathan Hock, will finally be available for download this Friday, January 24th in the iTunes store and other video-on-demand (VOD) platforms including Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation, Cinemanow and Vudu.

OFF THE REZ 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, 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.
