On VOD: TIN SOLDIERS

tin soldiersComing to VOD today, Tuesday, August 16: TIN SOLDIERS

Ben Duffy’s look at adaptive sports athletes debuted at San Juan earlier this year. The Orchard now releases the doc on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox, and other VOD platforms.

After an unnecessary prologue, Duffy proceeds to profile several individuals of varying ages and ability who take part in sports adapted to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities. This survey approach introduces viewers to the likes of a double amputee power lifter and CrossFit trainer, a Paralympian gold medalist in both wheelchair basketball and alpine skiing, and an adorable three-year-old with spina bifida who participates in WCMX – BMX with wheelchairs. Earnest in its desire to demonstrate the inspirational nature of its subjects and their adaptability to adversity, the film is unfortunately hampered by a distracting score but will serve as a useful educational and awareness-building tool.
