Racing to the Press

As pre-production for Racing To Rio comes to an end, The Barbaro-Gould Foundation is excited to jump into filming come October.  We are preparing press releases and rounding out the last stages of pre-production.

Racing to Rio hopes to capture the resilient spirit of Paralympic sailors and the stunning impact they have on the community around them. The Clearwater area will be portrayed as a united community and foreground on the international sailing stage. In October, world class sailing coaches from the United States and beyond will arrive in Clearwater, along with Olympic and Paralympic teams alike. It is critical for the production team to record as many of these moments as possible.

In light of the Paralympic Committee’s decision to remove sailing from the 2020 games, it is especially urgent to highlight the importance of sailing and cover what will likely be the final Paralympic sailing game.
