Rising Phoenix: Tokyo (working title)

Rising Phoenix: Tokyo (working title) began production in March 2020 once the world became aware of Covid 19. As the world began to close down we began a journey of trying to document the threat of Covid on the Games and the athletes who were due to travel to Tokyo. 

Tokyo (working title) has become a three-part series following 12 Paralympians from 11 countries and the International Paralympic Committee as they battle Covid-19 to finally stage the Tokyo Games. It provides a unique insight into one of the most extraordinary sporting events in history.  

The series has been directed by Mat Whitecross, co-directed by Bim Ajadi and Exec Produced by Jack Thorne, writer and disability activist.
