The Last Gold
The Last Gold is the USA Swimming-produced documentary spotlighting the 1976 women's U.S. Olympic Team and the East German doping scandal. Considered one of the greatest untold stories in Olympic history, The Last Gold details the heroic efforts of the women's 1976 U.S. Olympic swim team as they competed against the systematically-doped East Germans. After an entire competition of disappointing results, winning no races and facing critical media that heaped on additional pressure, the U.S. women rallied together to do as a team what they could not do individually; win gold.
The film is directed by 15-time Emmy winner Brian T. Brown and narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Julianna Margulies, one of TIME Magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" for 2015. Margulies also starred in NBC's long running drama, ER and is now the star of The Good Wife on CBS. The World Premiere of The Last Gold will take place during the 2016 LA Film Festival in Culver City, California, on Monday, June 6. The feature-length documentary is one of only twelve documentary films chosen for this year's festival. The Last Gold will be in theaters nationwide on July 11 for a special one-night event at your local theater.
