Freedom2.jpg

Quentin Tarantino and Lucy Liu are the EPs of a documentary film about–no, not competitive knife throwing– water polo.

But it is a bloody water polo match: Hungary vs. USSR in the 1956 Olympics. Brother/sister film makers, Colin Keith Gray and Megan Raney Aarons made Freedom’s Fury, They interviewed surviving members of both teams and arranged and filmed a reunion of the two teams in Budapest in 2002.

David Davis interviewed the filmakers for the AAF newsletter. Best quote:

People think that it’s a little obscure. Once they see the people involved–Mark Spitz, Lucy Liu, Quentin Tarantino–and then they hear that it’s about a struggle for freedom–that instantly resonates everywhere.
