Excellent movie for a day off from training!
What defines an athlete..? Is it love and support of thousands, a championship ring, or a multi
million dollar contract..? Think again!
Since we haven’t completely Darwined out our desire for physical activity, we continue to seek such challenges... How far can we run..? How fast can we pedal..? The industry has responded to this need. Companies keep us drooling with prodigious amounts of shiny new gear. Event organizers are serving up more races than ever. And the media is right there capturing it all in photos and in print.
Director/Producer David Lam spent filming and editing a movie that captures the character of today’s amateur endurance athletes. It is not a professional athlete highlight reel... and it is not a Lance Armstrong documentary..
It is a film about the rest of us. It follows men and women that work 9-to-5 jobs, raise families and deal with life’s challenges.
It is a film that we can all relate to and you can see it this year!
'Athlete' is a film that examines the growing popularity of endurance sports and profiles four everyday individuals - cancer survivor, blind senior citizen and twin sisters - who compete in marathons and triathlons and are redefining what it means to be an 'athlete'.
