Watch Trailer for Dame Valerie Adams: MORE THAN GOLD

The trailer is out for feature documentary Dame Valerie Adams: MORE THAN GOLD, directed by Briar March and produced by DEGANZ member Leanne Pooley. The film follows the candid and inspirational story of Dame Valerie Adams, one of the world’s most celebrated athletes.

It is a story of a mother, a daughter, a sister and a survivor. At a time when sportswomen globally are struggling with pressures beyond the field of play, Dame Valerie Adams is a beacon of hope.

Leanne states, “I’m very proud to have made an honest film about a kiwi icon that goes way beyond the ordinary ‘sports’ documentary. Dame Valerie opened herself up, sharing a story of resilience and tenacity that is almost incomprehensible. If it was fiction no one would believe it.”

Dame Valerie Adams: MORE THAN GOLD will have its nationwide cinema release on October 20, 2022.
