Directed by: Matt Norman
The plot: At the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos gave a Black Power salute on the winner's podium after a closely fought 200 metres sprint with Australian athlete Peter Norman. This documentary examines a defining moment in sport which became an enduring symbol of the Civil Rights struggle at a time when black nations had threatened to boycott the Games and black athletes within the US team had been urged to follow suit.
