This year, the NATVS® campaign tells the stories of local born superstars and emerging talent with a series of documentaries.
Over the next few months, we will roll out profiles of boxer Dusty Harrison, band Rdgldgrn, DC-United goalie Bill Hamid, and other artists, athletes and personalities united by their relentless dedication to following their own paths but also recognizing their cities as their home. These documentaries will support the “NATVS™” photography series, which will be curated by different talented photographers, that will each bring their own unique flare.
The first release will be Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, a 21-year-old prospect from Washington, D.C. He is one of the first fighters to sign with Jay Z’s prestigious Roc Nation Sports. Dusty turned professional at age 16 in 2011 after over 200 amateur bouts, leading his handlers to bill him as the youngest professional fighter in America. Dusty is the current WBC Youth World Welterweight Champion and 2nd in the world with the best-undefeated record after Floyd Mayweather, at 26 wins and zero loses.
The documentary will premiere July 1st and will be split into two 10-minute parts. It will premiere on July 1st and July 7th respectively, onto Made in the District’s YouTube page.
