 No Excuses

 

WORLD PREMEIRE

    Montreal Film Festival, September 2nd and 3rd 2004

SYNOPSIS
 

No Excuses travels with the 2002 U.S. Disabled Ski Team across Europe, Canada and the United States through a three-month World Cup season that culminates at the Salt Lake City Paralympic Games - where paralyzed, amputee and visually impaired racers reach speeds of up to 70 mph on the Olympic downhill course.

During this historic season, the 22 athletes on the U.S. team compete to win their fourth straight Nations Cup and to win acceptance of disabled skiing as legitimate sport.  No Excuses portrays six featured athletes as they see themselves: fierce competitors accepting neither pity nor excuses. Sensing a singular opportunity to change the way their sport in particular and disabled people in general are often viewed - as 'oddities' - Chris Devlin Young, Lacey Heward, Lee Joiner, Jason Lalla, Joe Tompkins and Chris Waddell share both intense and intimate moments during this extraordinary season.

No Excuses captures the individual struggle of athletic endeavor and an honest acknowledgement of grief without the sentiment and pity common in typical media coverage of the disabled
