Steve Nash premiering Terry Fox doc at Toronto


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Terry Fox’s incredible story has been told numerous times on film, and rightfully so.

The Canadian runner who’d lost a leg to cancer, embarked on a cross-country foot race across Canada to help raise awareness and funds for cancer research. His journey was cut short after health concerns forced him to stop running on day 143. Fox died shortly after his attempt due to complications, but his legacy has lived on for decades.

Now Canadian basketball star Steve Nash will tell Fox’s story once again in the documentary “Into the Wind.” It will be part of ESPN’s spectacular “30 for 30” documentary film series, and also will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, according to the Globe & Mail.

Nash, an NBA all-star who directed “Wind,” told ESPN: “I remember being a six-year-old boy and waking up every morning and rushing to the TV to see where Terry was that day. To see him running or hobbling across our country for the spirit of community and looking out for others was something that has stuck with me ever since. To see his face hiding the pain and to hear his words disguising the sacrifice was as motivating and as educational an experience as I’ve ever had. To be able to tell this story again, to Americans who love an underdog and a story of overcoming and struggle, is something any new filmmaker would love.”

For those who can’t make it to TIFF this year, Nash’s documentary will premiere on ESPN on Tuesday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m.
