The Pararoos - Feature Length Documentary
The Pararoos are Australia's only National Football Team for athletes with cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury or symptoms acquired from stroke. In 2015, after the Australian Sports Commission withdrew all government funding, FFA partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) to establish a fund to raise money for the team to continue to exist. The Pararoos are the lifeblood of disability football. They inspire thousands of everyday Australians who struggle with the challenges of disability. And this documentary follows their journey to the 2017 World Cup in Argentina.
