A FILM FROM SAM REGA AND CHRIS WELLER
Since 1999, 17 out of 21 winners of the Scripps National Spelling Bee have been of Indian descent. For the last 9 consecutive years, Indian American students won the competition. For the past three years, there have been co-champions, all of whom are Indian American. It's more than a trend. For these children and their families, spelling is a way of life.
Breaking The Bee is directed by Sam Rega and produced by Chris Weller.
