Reviews

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

Salute was just what we wanted, a film depicting the Olympics in Mexico City at a time of Racial discrimination and tension in 1968. It's a straightforward documentary of events at the time. Swift and effective delivery as always.

An excellent Australian documentary about the infamous 1968 Olympics. A great shame it is totally unavailable on the US market.
This UK DVD cannot be played on most US DVD players, however.

I bought this having been inspired by the brief BBC historic account of this unforgettable event during the London Games coverage and at my son's suggestion. The film is definitely worth watching but has the air of a relatively low budget tv documentary - not a classic big screen event. As I didn't know what to expect I wasn't really disappointed but more could be made of the footage available.

Brilliant. A story that needed to be told! I am not sure who comes out of this worst, America The IOC or Australia. Great job Matt Norman you are obviously very proud of your uncle Peter. If there were more human beings like Peter the world would be a better place, thank you for sharing.

I saw this at a film festival not too long ago and thought it just fabulous. I was totally unaware of this important story. Peter Norman ran the fastest 200 metres in history at the 1968 Mexico games but it was what happened on the podium that was important, joined by two black US runners Tommie Smith and John Carlos who raised their arms in the Black Power Salute and bowed their heads to a chorus of boos. I won't spoil the film by spelling it all out but will say this film is definitely worth your time, a fascinating and emotionally heart-rending story!
