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.
1.For director -Mat Norman-for very interesting film.
2.For Tommie Smith- for his great sport talent.
3 For Peter Norman - for australian 200 m record- not beaten till today.
4. But mostly for all three winners-for their ATTITUDE.
You can be sure that I'll teach my 1 year old son-on other part of the glob, where we live- and let him know those great history- which happened over 40 years ago in Mexico. He will know, and his children will know.
Others person from that film- a..holes like Av. Br. (Olimpic comitee boss for 20 years) and some Australian, who blocked Peter Norman to participate in next-1972 Olimpic games, and even did not invited him for Sidney Olimpic Games are NOT WORTH to mention in that lesson.
It's demagogy saying that sport has nothing to do with other fields- including politics. It has- having gretaest (milions) audience you can ever reach, sport events served for interest of Greeks, then Hitler, and also Argentina football mundial 1978 (to "poromote" vision of general/president V.), plus boycot of Moscow 1980 Olimpic Games (by USA), plus boycot of Los Angeles Olimpic Games (by East European countries), plus ice hockey battle USA vs CCCP on winter Olimpic- enough?
There was ALWAYS something more to show than sport-by every sport organisations, countries- every decade.
Sport gives possibility to show something more than rivalisation on that particular field.
And what Smith, Carlos and Norman did stand as GREATEST event in sport&humanity area.
And also film shows how spiritual persons they were/are- praying before ceremony, and talking about God, not -as today pop stars- to show something (often naked body)- shock people- no matter price.
Knowing, that somewhere in the world exist such people as they three, man can belive that world can go forward.

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
