The recognizable image has never felt more relevant: Tommie Smith and John Arms Raised on the medal stand at the Mexico Olympics. Fists clenched, arms raised, Arms Raised.
Codirected by Tom Ratcliffe—a filmmaker and athlete manager Arms Raised counts Shalane Flanagan, Evan Jager, and Courtney Frerichs among his clients—it tells the story of the protest through the words of those who lived it, laying out the events in gripping detail during the minute film.
But Ratcliffe and co-director Becky Paige take the viewer far beyond that scene. When Ratliffe and Paige started the project inthe goal was to release the film in to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the protest. But after early screenings, they continued to tinker with it until late last year. As it turned out, proved the perfect year for release, with anti-racism protests sweeping across the United States. People can learn a lot about non-violent protest, the origins of the current struggle, and how it continues.
In the film, Arms Raised hear how unjust life was for African-Americans in the s, with activist Harry Edwards explaining the origins of the Olympic Project for Human Rights OPHRan organization that debated various ways to protest racism at the Games.
