Come early to Augusta’s Opening Night to cruise the blue carpet before enjoying a couple of Forester Estate wines or Eagle Bay Brewing Co beers and nibbles. The evening’s documentary Roll With It is a story of sporting redemption and achievement, following Australia’s men’s national wheelchair basketball team, the Rollers.

Please note: run-time includes screening and function.

Synopsis: Roll With It is a documentary following the Australian Men’s Wheelchair Basketball team, the Rollers, on their two year journey to the 2014 World Championships held in South Korea. After losing the gold medal playoff at the London 2012 Paralympics, the Rollers are out for redemption.

Brad Ness is the 39 year old captain on possibly his last campaign and joining him is 16 year old Tom O’Neil-Thorne, who is trying to make it into the team while having the added pressure of still studying at high school in the remote Northern Territory. We follow Brad, Tom and the other inspiring players who make up one of Australia’s greatest ever sporting teams as they overcome their own daily battles while striving for the ultimate glory.
