Please join WFI and GW’s School of Media and Public Affairs for an inspirational film event!
On Wednesday October 19, we will screen ONE REVOLUTION.
Director: Amanda Stoddard
Starring: Chris Waddell
Country: USA / Running Time: 95 mins / Language: English
Paralyzed in 1988 while ski racing for Middlebury College, Chris Waddell went on to become one of the most decorated Paralympic athletes, earning 13 medals over seven games. He is a World Championship skier and wheelchair racer, and is bringing his inspirational story to GW for the first time on October 19th.
ONE REVOLUTION cinematically captures Waddell’s very human journey to dare greatly and ultimately to live fully. This film chronicles the heart and spirit behind an extraordinary achievement as it documents his almost entirely unassisted paraplegic ascent of 19,340-foot Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Compelled to change the way that others perceive those with disabilities, Waddell also founded One Revolution Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to change the way that the world sees people with disabilities by demonstrating the common journey of challenge.
Come meet this amazing man and see his story of personal and physical triumph!
