Inspiring Documentary Focused On Paralympics Coming To Netflix Next Week

Sports documentaries have come on leaps and bounds in recent years. ESPN's 30 for 30 series is perhaps the best known example, but many other sources have produced brilliant series and features over the last decade or so.

Netflix are no exception. The likes of Last Chance U and Sunderland Till I Die have been massive hits, while The Last Dance (produced in partnership with ESPN) was a global phenomenon during lockdown.

The latest offering from the streaming site arrives next week and it should make for a compelling watch.

Rising Phoenix will be released on Wednesday, August 26th, focusing on the Paralympics, its history and origins, as well as the incredible athletes that take part in the games.

The documentary features interviews with a number of athletes who took part in the games, as well as going on to explain how the Paralympics have changed the general public's understanding of those who have physical disabilities.

You can watch the trailer below.


Netflix describes the documentary as:

Rising Phoenix tells the extraordinary story of the Paralympic Games.

From the rubble of World War II to the third biggest sporting event on the planet, the Paralympics sparked a global movement which continues to change the way the world thinks about disability, diversity & human potential.

This should make for an inspiring watch.
