Chris' Film Club: Salute

Our last sporting film this week is 'Salute'.

A 2008 Australian documentary about the runner Peter Norman, who was the ‘third man’ in the famous black power salute by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Summer Olympics.

A powerful story directed by Matthew Norman, Peter’s nephew, about Norman’s subsequent exile from Australian sport as a result of his views on racial equality.
