"Positive All the Way," a New Documentary About the Paralympics, to Air on PBS

The film spotlights the Paralympic movement and is the latest production from The Foundation for Global Sports Development and Sidewinder Films.

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Foundation for Global Sports Development and Sidewinder Films are pleased to announce the release of their newest film, POSITIVE ALL THE WAY. The short 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 the world's largest adaptive sports organization, transforming it into a global force for social change.

"Parasport is one of the truest embodiments of that very precious social activity – SPORT!" Sir Philip Craven said. "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."

POSITIVE ALL THE WAY is airing around the country on PBS stations and the WORLD Channel to mark this month's 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). These stations are commemorating the milestone by premiering this compelling story of Sir Philip Craven and his contribution to the Paralympics.

"We are thrilled PBS is airing POSITIVE ALL THE WAY," said Dr. Steven Ungerleider, the film's producer and director. "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."

David Ulich, also a producer and director of the film, added, "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."
