  1. Apologies if this is a duplicate.
    It was just posted to the CMass-sydney list and I'm vaguely aware that
    someone was lamenting about it not being shown in Sydney.


    Hi there,

    I'm just writing with some news that I hope you may be interested in passing
    on to members. As you may be aware, we are proudly opening Tomas Gislason's
    new film OVERCOMING (M) at Dendy Opera Quays this week. We're delighted to
    be giving this cycling docu-drama of the CSC 2004 Tour de France team a
    theatrical release. I'm currently attempting to raise awareness through the
    cycling community and various sources have mentioned your organisation as a
    starting point.

    As a launch party we are holding a special Opening Night event on this Thurs
    (Feb 9th) at 6.30pm. It's an event to promote the film and raise awareness
    of cycling safety. A portion of proceeds are going directly to the Amy
    Gillett-Safe Foundation, and there's a bike ride to the event starting at
    Bar Coluzzi in Darlinghurst at 5.30pm. Upon arrival cyclists will be able
    to enjoy free coffee and refreshments. The Sydney premiere will then
    commence at 6.30pm! Bookings can be made on 02 92473800.

    All details are currently on our website www.dendy.com.au/special and I was
    wondering whether you would be interested in announcing the film's
    theatrical release and the Opening Night event in your various forms of
    communication? I can provide images, film specs and some in season double
    passes to see the film if you're interested in running a competition.

    Let me know your thoughts at your earliest convenience - I'd be thrilled to
    be able to give this film a little more attention via the combined strength
    of our organisations.

    A gutsy tour de force of the greatest roadrace in the world, OVERCOMING is
    the gripping new docu-drama from Danish director Tomas Gislason (co-writer
    of Lars Von Trier's Europa and The Kingdom).

    Legendary cyclist Bjarne Riis is putting together a team to race the Tour de
    France. At time when Lance Armstrong seems almost beatable, his mission
    seems possible. Yet the infamous race, impossible egos and gruelling
    conditions make the possible a nail-biting journey. With a truly
    international cast including Ivan Basso (Italy), Bjarne Riis (Denmark),
    Bobby Julich (USA), Carlos Sastre (Spain), Jens Voigt (Germany) and Michelle
    Bartoli (Italy), this is inspirational story is part "Hell on Wheels", part
    "Touching The Void".
