Choosing Victory

1985 • USA • 90 min

Thanks to its stunning pageantry, patriotic splendor and individual heroics, it's all too easy for some participants in the Olympics to receive scant attention. In this documentary, filmmaker Muffett Kaufman profiles one such group -- five handicapped competitors -- as they prepare for, and later compete in, the 1984 Olympics wheelchair race. Despite the subjects' apparent physical disabilities, their status as world-class athletes is never in doubt.
