Inspiring film - the genuine overcoming of adversity.
14 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Harry Cordellos is a famous, powerful and competitive athlete from San Francisco. Blind from birth, save for a very short post-op period in his teens, Harry participated in many sportsincluding distance running, as the "stoker" on a tandem bicycle, golfing, beeper ball and cross country skiing. He swam the Golden Gate and from Alcatraz to San Francisco. Harry even tried hang gliding, back in the days of tarps stretched over bamboo! Harry earned a Master's degree at San Francisco State in recreation and worked as an information telephone specialist for the Bay Area Rapid Transit system.

This film is a documentary shot during the famously difficult "Dipsea" cross country race across Mt. Tamalpais, from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach, north of San Francisco. Guided by Mike Restani, his frequent training, racing and swimming partner, Harry is seen over more difficult stretches of the course. Some running scenes were added with participation of frequent participants in the annual race.

This inspirational film should be a standard in the film library of support services for the differentially-abled and for distance runners as well.
