WALK LIKE A MAN
Director: Jim Morgison, Patricia Zagarella
Stars: Ian Roberts (narrator)
Hundreds of competitors arrived in New York City in 2006 to represent their country in the Bingham Cup, the premier international tournament for gay rugby union. The Cup is named for Mark Bingham, a player with the San Francisco Fog who was aboard United 93 on September 11, 2001.
Gay Australian Rugby League champion turned actor Ian Roberts narrates Walk Like A Man, the Australian documentary about the tournament, and it’s the Australian team, the Sydney Convicts, who fall closest into focus and who ultimately win the trophy.
Walking like a man is something we all try to do, in one way or another. It’s a tough act to get right, but Walk Like A Man doesn’t even really try to get near the tributaries that feed into this very busy topic area.
