The picture of the three men on the winner's podium after the men's 200 metre final at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics is still considered one of the most powerful images in modern history. Salute tells the true story behind this iconic image, the story of American athletes Tommie Smith, John Carlos and the Australian silver medallist Peter Norman--three Olympic competitors who, in one peaceful but inflammatory moment of political protest as they received their medals on the podium at the 1968 games in Mexico City, would destroy their sporting careers and become a seminal and enduring symbol of the Civil Rights struggle.
"A truly astonishing slice of partially forgotten history"--Evening Standard, Derek Malcolm
"Fascinating personal testimony from an iconic moment when sporting hopes collided with political ideals"--The Express, Allan Hunter
"Uplifting and inspiring"--Daily Mirror, David Edwards
"A startling film which tells a story hugely deserving of a wider audience" *****--Best For Film
"Salute is much more than a sports documentary, it's the story of true heroes, men who used a moment in time to change the world"--ITV Sport, Tony Pastor

Who is the white guy standing near to the 2 black heroes of one of the most famous pictures of 20th century?
Not just a white guy, but an untold hero.
Probably the one who least benefited from what was done in that occasion, but a silent normal guy who did what everyone should: standing for justice, without showing off.
This film is an attempt to let us know about him, and about the 2 black guys who, along with him, shared a glorious moment and as well suffered all the consequences of their act: being banned forever from sport and society, from media and social acceptance.
A simple documentary yet very true and effective, where words from protagonists and witnesses do better than any visual stylish idea. The director, as well as the protagonist, preferred not to show off, and rather be essential.
This UK DVD cannot be played on most US DVD players, however.

Salute is an interesting documentary, particularly if you were born after the 1968 Olympic Games or know nothing or very little on the expressions of freedom made during it. Read morePublished on 9 Dec. 2013 by AJ Graham
