My Way To Olympia

.
The film director Niko von Glasow undertakes a journey with the athletes who compete at the Paralympic Games in London 2012. He himself is a short-armed avowed hater of sport, who cannot understand how anyone could take on such an ordeal voluntarily, particularly since everyday life for people with a disability is challenging enough without the added pressures of competitive sports.

Press

  • Premiering at the Berlinale last week, this highly personal and surprisingly funny documentary follows a group of disabled athletes preparing to compete in the Paralympic Games in London last summer. The German director Niko von Glasow, a former assistant to Rainer Werner Fassbinder, was himself born with short arms because his mother took the notorious sedative Thalidomide during pregnancy.
