Original Title: Paratodos
2016 | 106 min | Documentary | Director: Marcelo Mesquita
In Portuguese with English Subtitles

Producer and Screenwriter Peppe Siffredi in Attendance

Synopsis: The best blind striker of all time, an ex top model and Big Brother in a wheelchair, the fastest man in the world without legs, a triathlete that woke up paralyzed and, in the water, turned it around. These are only a few of the characters of this movie, that escapes the obvious appeal to the heroism and role model of the Paralympic athletes to give room to questions like ego-trips, competitiveness, adaptation, resilience and the impact of inclusion. Having a deficiency is a challenge, but it doesn’t tie up the plot of a life.
