Dan Jones (Detour de France, MIFF 2006) and Marcus Cobbledick (Fairless, MIFF 2015) team up to bring us the the story of GreenEDGE, Australia's first ProTour cycling team.
In 2011, as world tour cycling was still reeling from the Lance Armstrong doping saga that cast a long shadow over the whole sport, Australia's first professional team emerged. GreenEDGE stood out for their unshakable culture of integrity, egalitarianism and honesty. United by their renegade spirit and a determination to win against substantial odds, the GreenEDGE riders took on the international circuit and earned the respect of their colleagues worldwide.
Jones – the name behind the team's popular Backstage Pass videos – and Cobbledick offer unique insights into the first five years of the GreenEDGE journey, bearing witness to the ethos of the team as embodied by all, from the strongest to most embattled members. Out of a deeply human approach to sport, unlikely champions are born, and seemingly improbable team and personal goals are achieved. A classic Aussie underdog story with a solid sense of humour, All for One turns the Tour de France into a sports doco tour de force.
Directors Dan Jones and Marcus Cobbledick will be at both sessions to introduce the film and take part in a post-screening Q&A.
