Gentlemen of Vision

In 2016, the Nine Network produced a documentary about Gentlemen of Vision, the north St. Louis County-based step team that doubles as a counseling and mentoring program.

The story resonated with local and national audiences, and also with representatives from the U.S. State Department. Officials selected it to be part of the American Film Showcase, a program that sends American filmmakers to screen their work across the globe.

The team behind “Gentlemen of Vision” flew out to Cartagena, Colombia, to show the film and talk to Colombian audiences about St. Louis and the similar challenges that face disadvantaged young people in both places.
