The Foundation for Global Sports Development and Sidewinder Films announce the release of their newest film, Positive All the Way.
The documentary celebrates the power of adaptive sport to ignite the human spirit and explores how Sir Philip Craven, the former president of the International Paralympic Committee, grew the IPC into reportedly the world’s largest adaptive sports organization, according to a media release.
“Parasport is one of the truest embodiments of that very precious social activity – SPORT! It is packed with positive energy which will infuse into your veins as you absorb this amazing tribute to Para athletes from all over the world.”
— Sir Philip Craven
Positive All the Way is airing across the country on PBS stations as well as on the PBS WORLD Channel to mark the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) in July.
“We are thrilled PBS is airing Positive All the Way. As a foundation, we have been involved in the Paralympic movement for many years and have witnessed the incredible impact parasport can have in communities. We look forward to sharing that with PBS viewers.”
— Dr Steven Ungerleider, the film’s producer and director
“Parasport and adaptive sport are often overlooked as avenues for people with disabilities to engage in their community and stay physically active. We hope viewers will see disability and parasport in a new way after watching our documentary and be inspired by the incredible feats of para athletes everywhere.”
— David Ulich, also a producer and director of the film
