Back on Board: Greg Louganis

by

Becoming an Olympic champion requires a lot of personal sacrifice. But what happens after the fame and glory dwindles is at the core of Cheryl Furjanic's documentary, Back on Board: Greg Louganis. Tough times have befallen the HIV-positive, four-time gold medalist who was shunned by the diving world he popularized. As Louganis struggles to regain financial stability, he must also overcome adversity and prejudice as he dives back into the pool. It's shown as part of Cinema St. Louis' QFest, which focuses on LGBTQ issues and celebrates queer culture through the medium of modern gay cinema.
