Tainted Blood Movie Screening & Filmmaker Discussion
February 6, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We’re excited to show the movie, Tainted Blood (www.taintedbloodfilm.com), and feature an after movie discussion with filmmaker Jill Yesko. Movie will start at 7pm. Please arrive early!
In a nearly forgotten incident, seven members of the U.S. Olympic cycling team blood doped at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles to earn the first US cycling medals since the 1912 Olympics.
Told through the voices of Olympic athletes, coaches, doctors, and sports historians, Tainted Blood explores the secret world where athletes push themselves to the precipice and are driven by coaches with their own Olympic-fueled dreams.
