This Senior-Citizen Synchronized Swim Team Will Make Your Day

The Harlem Honeys and Bears are a synchronized swim team for seniors 55 years and older. In this short film, Veena Rao captures the “freedom” that comes from being in the water, a freedom that allows these performers to “do all kinds of things that [they] cannot do on land” and stay, as one member says, “92 years young.”

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society. Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase?
