New Trailer For Salute Online
Black Power at the Olympics

20 June 2012  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

If you prefer something a little more grown-up and historical than the Monsters University teaser earlier today, how about Salute? A documentary about events at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City, it hits cinemas in the UK just ahead of this year's Games, on July 13. And we have an exclusive new trailer for it here.

 

The story, as you may have gathered, concerns what happened on the podium following the 200m race that year. The Gold and Bronze medalists, Tommie Smith and John Carlos respectively, raised their arms in a salute similar to the Black Power salute (they describe it as a human rights salute), while Silver medalist Peter Norman wore a badge supporting the statement. All three faced controversy and criticism for the move afterwards.

Salute is directed by Matt Norman, Peter's nephew, and looks at both the statement itself and its aftermath. While it's been around Festivals and Norman's native Australia for a few years now, we get to see it on the big screen on July 13, so get on your marks and get set for then.
