30 for 30 Shorts: ‘Collision Course’

Our latest film, from acclaimed director Billy Corben, tells the story of fast times, faster boats, and the man in the middle of it all

Welcome back to our 30 for 30 documentary short series.

Don Aronow was a family man who moved to Miami in the ’60s after making a fortune in New Jersey construction, but soon his focus turned to building and racing cigarette boats. He became world famous, selling boats and fostering close relationships with some of the most powerful men in the world. But during that time in Miami, the people who needed Aronow’s products the most (and some of the only ones who could afford the hefty price tag) were drug smugglers. Aronow’s tale would end in a hail of bullets, leaving questions that still haven’t been answered.
