No arms, no legs, no problem.
This story of the 2004 US quadriplegic rugby team features fierce rivalry, nail-biting suspense, athletic prowess, incredible personalities and triumph over daunting odds. But it’s much more than a sports doc. It’s a film that uses sport to look into the lives, hopes and fears of young men who have been told they would never walk again. Documentary Club are screening it at the beautiful Shortwave cinema in Bermondsey, so head down, enjoy a drink and a pizza on the enormous sun terrace, and discuss this amazing film with some fellow documentary lovers. Stuart Robinson, captain of the UK Armed Forces Wheelchair Rugby team, will be holding a Q&A session after the screening, answering questions about the film and his personal experiences. He lost both his legs in an attack in Afghanistan in 2013. Documentary Club will be donating any profit from this screening to Stuart’s Team Legless project. Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 28 minutes.
