The Movement: One Man Joins an Uprising. A documentary narrated by Robert Redford and ski movie legend Warren Miller, featuring stories of inspiring individuals with disabilities overcoming limitation, including Rick Finkelstein, paralyzed at Aspen CO, re-learning to ski after the tragic accident, on the slopes, which paralyzed him.
"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." - Robert Redford.
The Movement has been accepted in 20+ film festivals including Sundance, was nominated for 7 Maverick Movie awards, and has won 5 awards, to date.
The reception of Make A Hero's first film has led to the start of production (2013) of Make A Hero's second film, The Current, starring Missy Franklin, Mallory Waggemann, Bethany Hamilton, Anthony Robles, Jesse Murphree which will feature individuals with disabilities experiencing adaptive water sports, while enjoying the healing power of the ocean, with renowned oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau providing narration.
