Narrated by Robert Redford and Warren Miller
Directed by Kurt Miller and Greg Hamilton
‘The Movement: One Man Joins An Uprising’, is the first in a series of adaptive sports films by Make A Hero that document individuals with disabilities overcoming limitations through adaptive sports & recreation.
Narrated by Robert Redford and Warren Miller, ‘The Movement’ tells the story of five everyday heroes from all walks of life, who faced incredible obstacles, yet developed the will to overcome their struggles.
Through adaptive skiing, each has ultimately discovered, or rediscovered, the freedom of movement and the pure joy of playing with gravity. ‘The Movement’s dynamic cast, shares how their disabilities are no longer a limitation, rather a strong aspect of their character.
World-renowned musician, Trevor Rabin, provides an original score, along with music from U2, k.d. lang, and the Foo Fighters. ‘The Movement’ has been accepted to over 20 film festivals including ‘Sundance‘, nominated for 7 Maverick Movie awards, and has won 5 awards to date.
Robert Redford – “The mountains can be tough to access, even for the able body. This project tells the stories of five people, from all walks of life, who found a way to experience a freedom they were told was impossible. They are an inspiration.”.
