Inspired to win.

by Syd Briscoe

World Wheelchair Rugby: “Here to Win” - 1 min 34s

This visceral film takes on the bone-crunching world of wheelchair rugby. A lad's journey to sporting glory is captured in all its blood, sweat, and tears here, accompanied by a nerve-tingling violin soundtrack which sets audience blood pumping from the off. Yet it isn't a simple tale of heroic victory, as a final upset turns the expected ending upside down.

This is an effective way to underline the film's message: disabled athletes aren't interested in being seen as inspirational, they're here to win. Director Alex Hulsey handles the twist adroitly, ensuring that viewers are left willing the bloke to get up and get back in the game. One for sport and drama fans alike.
