Over the Limit

Marta Prus 2017

Over the Limit shows how the successful Russian system for training athletes transgresses boundaries. Elite rhythmic gymnast Rita Mamun has reached a crucial moment in her career. She’s soon to retire, but has one final goal set out for her: winning Olympic gold. A nail-biting behind-the-scenes drama about the intense physical and mental labor put into a sport that thrives on its beautiful aesthetics.

    “for a moment we relax in expectation that “Over the Limit” will be a rather soothing sports documentary. Minutes later, however, we realize that what we are watching is a real-life horror movie.”
