Roads To Olympia
Organized by: Katherine Randel
Event Name: Roads to Olympia1
'Roads To Olympia' is a feature film about three young athletes who face cultural oppression, intolerance and poverty as they pursue a shared dream: to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. Through the art of storytelling we plan to raise awareness for LGBT rights, women's rights, income inequality and poverty. Help us raise the funds needed to complete this film and we will change the world together by telling these important stories.
Meet the Champions for Each Cause.
In Russia, Roma embodies the ideal Olympic decathlete. He fights to keep a double life hidden from his father, a politician supporting the anti-gay law, and a nation seeped in homophobia.
Muna, a Saudi student with a desire to play football, lives in an Islamic country where women are deemed indecent for participating in sports. She risks freedom and puts her life on the line in pursuit of her passion.
Manuel, a Brazilian wrestler living in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, the host city of the Olympics, struggles to get his mother out of poverty by making it to the Games. Socioeconomic conditions threaten to tear him from his family and ultimately destroy his Olympic Dream.
Three lives. Three dreams. Three ROADS to OLYMPIA.
