The Screen Guide

This documentary follows Peter Norman's involvement in the Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics. This salute is one of the most famous images of the 20th century. Peter was the silver medallist in the 200m final at the 1968 Olympics and part of the iconic silent protest of Tommie Smith and John Carlos. SALUTE documents, for the first time, the role a white man from Australia had in an important symbolic moment in the American Civil Rights Movement.
