Underwater Dreams, written and directed by Mary Mazzio, and narrated by Michael Peña, is an epic story of how the sons of undocumented Mexican immigrants learned how to build an underwater robot from cheap PVC parts. And defeat engineering powerhouse MIT in the process. Hailed by Jonathan Alter as "the most politically significant documentary film since Waiting for Superman (The Daily Beast); featured on the Colbert Report; called "astonishing... already a contender for the best documentary of 2014" (David Noh, Film Journal); "moving and insightful" (Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times) with similar reviews from the New York Times and others, Underwater Dreams was released theatrically on July 11 in Los Angeles, New York, and Phoenix with AMC Theatres. The project was announced by the White House; opened ClintonGlobal (with Chelsea Clinton moderating); and screened at the Aspen Ideas Festival (with Jonathan Alter moderating). The film, which is the centerpiece of NBCUniversal's new community engagement campaign focused on exciting the next generation of Hispanic students around engineering, is currently embarking upon a 100 city tour in partnership with AMC Theatres where non-profits and educators can bring large groups of students to their local AMC to see the film on the big screen. Free of charge. An educational initiative with NBCLearn is underway.

Bob Lee Swagger, one of the world's great marksmen and the son of a Congressional Medal of Honoree, is a loner living in the Rockies. He's left the military, having been hung out to dry in a secret Ethiopian mission a few years before, when he's recruited by a lisping colonel to help find a way that the President of the US might be assassinated in one of three cities in the next two weeks. He does his work, but the shot is fired notwithstanding and Bob Lee is quickly the fall guy: wounded and hunted by thousands, he goes to ground and, aided by two unlikely allies, searches for the truth and for those who double-crossed him.
