Film: Endless Abilities & Dialogue on Inclusive Sports

In the spring of 2012, four best friends drove across the country in search of adaptive sports for individuals with physical disabilities, and lived to tell the story in a feature documentary film.

From rehabilitation patients to Paralympic athletes, the cameras captured the reality of broken boundaries and common goals among all who are active. They went rock climbing with the blind, played soccer with quadriplegics, and swam with those with muscular dystrophy, to name a few. Through their journey, they learned that sports really are the great equalizer, unifying people of all abilities on a level playing field.

Directors: Harvey Burrell, Tripp Clemens
Produced: Will Humphrey
Writer: Tripp Clemens
Music by: Sam Ewing
Runtime: 76 mins.
