Who better to cover the Paralympics, the international sporting event
for athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities, than Niko von
Glasow, the world's best-known disabled filmmaker? Unfortunately — or
fortunately for anyone seeking an insightful and funny documentary —
this filmmaker frankly hates sports and thinks the games are "a stupid
idea." Born with severely shortened arms, von Glasow serves as an
endearing guide to London's Paralympics competition in My Way to Olympia.
As he meets a one-handed Norwegian table tennis player, the Rwandan
sitting volleyball team, an American archer without arms and a Greek
paraplegic boccia player, his own stereotypes about disability and
sports get delightfully punctured. Official Selection of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.
