Storyline

'Unbeaten,' the second film from award-winning documentary filmmakers Steven C. Barber and Tamara Henry, is an inspirational story that chronicles the exploits of 31 paraplegics for six days, as they make their way in wheelchairs and hand cycles in the toughest road race in the world. The course winds 267 miles though the mountain passes of Denali National Park between Fairbanks and Anchorage. The film takes us into the 55 mile-per-day grind of three wheelchair racers. The story transitions midway through as the filmmaker follows the elite racers of the U.S. Paralympics squad, Oz Sanchez (current Paralympic gold medalist and fastest man in the world in a hand cycle) and Alejandro Albor (Paralympic silver medalist) in their quest to medal at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics.

Good documentary about overcoming adversity
2 May 2014 | by DennisGAllardSee all my reviews

This good documentary follows several participants in the Sadler's Ultra Challenge 267 miles wheel chair race from Fairbanks to Alaska. It goes on to follow two participants in the Olympic games in Beijing.

Although I am not disabled I have done some long distance athletic events and found myself relating to the challenges faced by these men and women in preparing for and doing what ends up as much or more a mental challenge as a physical one.

Interviews with the men doing the race give insight into them as people and how they live their lives with optimism and dedication. I was inspired by hearing their stories. Beyond the athletic challenges, we learn about overcoming difficulties in life in a way that transcends disability.

Well worth watching.
