Rising Phoenix: Netflix releases documentary on Paralympics

Netflix has released a sports documentary on Paralympics, named ‘Rising Phoenix’ which has premiered globally in over 190 countries on 26th August. It coincided with the one-year-to-go celebrations for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Rising Phoenix tells the extraordinary story of the Paralympics Games starting from its humble beginnings to the global phenomenon it is today.

The documentary features 9 Paralympic athletes, whose exceptional stories have been told in the film.

  • Bebe Vio (Italy)
  • Ellie Cole (Australia)

  • Matt Stutzman (USA)
  • Jonnie Peacock (Great Britain)

  • Tatyana McFadden (USA)

Matt Stutzman is a London 2012 silver medallist. He was born without arms and is one of nine Paralympians whose stories are depicted in the documentary.

He said: “I think [the film] is trying to bring awareness to everyone who is watching. Yes, we have physical disabilities, but that does not stop us. We can still live normal lives. We can still be the person who goes to the grocery store and gets food. We can live like everybody else.”

Paralympic Games is going to host a global conversation based on the Netflix documentary ‘Rising Phoenix’ on 29th August. The documentary depicts how Paralympics have sparked a global movement throughout the decades. It also shows how it continues to change the way the world thinks about disability, excellence, diversity and human potential.
