The feature-length documentary “Back on Board: Greg Louganis“ will make its WORLD PREMIERE at the AFI DOCS Film Festival in June 2014. The film will also screen at the famous Castro Theater in June at the Frameline LGBT Film Festival.
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.
For the last three years, Greg has been working closely with filmmakers Cheryl Furjanic and Will Sweeney to bring this story to the screen.
The filmmakers are currently raising money to put the finishing touches on the film. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help get them to the finish line!!!
