    "Back on Board: Greg Louganis"... An Intimate Documentary Film

    in Movies

    “Back on Board: Greg Louganis” is an intimate portrait of the public triumphs and private struggles of trailblazing openly gay athlete Greg Louganis. In this episode, Nicholas Snow presents his coverage of Greg at the 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival, and offers an encore presentation of a previous red carpet inter view with the Olympian. 


    A refreshingly candid documentary film about this four-time Olympic champion, “Back on Board” follows Greg Louganis over the past three years as he struggles with financial security and reunites with the sport he once dominated but not welcomed in. The threat of losing his house during the recent financial crisis forces Louganis to re-evaluate the choices, relationships, and missed opportunities of his career.


    With unprecedented access, the film reveals the complicated life of an athlete whose grace, beauty, and courage sparked a worldwide fascination with diving. It chronicles Louganis’ rise from a difficult upbringing to nearly universal acclaim as the greatest diver ever, and from pioneering openly gay athlete with HIV to an overlooked sports icon. “Back on Board” is the engrossing story of an American legend as he re-emerges on the world stage to combat prejudice, promote tolerance, and return to the diving world after a long period of absence to act as a mentor to the next generation.

    Silly, Messy Humans: ¨Slut: A Documentary Film¨ by Emily Lindin

    in Current Events

    Imagine you’re eleven years old and labelled the school ¨slut.¨ Where would you turn? What would you do? Emily Lindin turned to her diary, chronicling each and every damaging event. More than a decade later Emily published these entries online and founded The Unslut Project. Devastated by the suicides of Rehtaeh Parsons, Amanda Todd, and Audrie Pott, Emily sought to provide some perspective to girls – more than a decade after her experiences - who currently feel trapped and ashamed.


    And now, Emily is producing ¨Slut: A Documentary Film.¨ This film will tell the stories of girls who took their own lives because of sexual bullying, and feature the opinions of respected sexologists, psychologists, and media figures to explore how we can all work toward a world where the word "slut" doesn't even make sense as an insult.


    Join us on this special broadcast date to learn more about Emily, her film, and how you can help bring its much needed messages to communities everywhere.
