Paying homage to those who influenced him, an international ski jump judge reflects back on 50 years in competitive sports
In 1970, if you lived in New England, you thought about the Boston Bruins and Orr. All the time. Unless you were Mark Levasseur, a 10-year-old gifted athlete from Worcester, MA. Mark was laser focused on emulating his father’s esteemed ski jumping record and becoming the next Bobby Orr. LIFT: An Ode to Love recounts Levasseur’s fifty-year journey in competitive sports. The short film is realized via archival footage, action-packed hockey and ski jumping, and a compelling interview, Levasseur pays tribute to the man and the sports community he credits with emboldening him with courage, compassion and grit.
