The Will To Fly

Community screenings are now available of the recent critically acclaimed film "The Will To Fly", which is about Olympic Champion Lydia Lassila. This film features themes that explore a range of topics that are relevant for athletes (particularly snow sports athletes) and student development. Topics include overcoming adversity and pursuing your dreams, as well as gender equality, leadership and the many benefits of sport for young people.

The Huffington Post called our film ‘The most inspirational movie of the year’ – Huffington Post, 12/3/16

ABOUT THE WILL TO FLY
The Will to Fly is the story of Olympic aerial skiing champion Lydia Lassila, who – as a young mum and against all the odds, competing in one of the world’s most dangerous sports – dares to reach for an almost impossible dream, and in doing so helps pave the way for women in sport.
