The Push (2018) USA

Owning your reality is where the journey begins

Directed by: Grant Korgan and Brian Niles.  Filmmakers present

An inspirational documentary about the power of never giving up. Grant Korgan is a world-class adventurer, nanomechanics professional, and husband. On March 5, 2010, while filming a snowmobiling segment in the Sierra Nevada backcountry, the Lake Tahoe native burst-fractured his L1 vertebrae, and suddenly added the world of spinal cord injury recovery to his list of pursuits. On January, 17, 2012, along with two seasoned explorers, Grant attempted the insurmountable, and became the first spinal cord injured athlete to literally PUSH himself – nearly 100 miles (the final degree of latitude) to the most inhospitable place on the planet – the bottom of the globe, the geographic South Pole. Grant and his guides reached their destination on the 100th anniversary of the first explorers to travel to the South Pole. Facing brutal elements, demanding topography and presumed physical limitations are just some of the challenges they faced along the journey. With this inspirational documentary, The Push team hopes to inspire people in all walks of life to achieve the seemingly unconquerable in their life, to push their own everyday limits, and to live their ultimate potential.
