A breathtaking new documentary puts human faces on the term "No Limits." "The Movement" features several men and one incredible young woman who let nothing get in the way of their passion for skiing - whether it's vision impairment, loss of limbs or other severe health challenges. The film is narrated by winter sports movie icon Warren Miller and legendary actor and director Robert Redford.

Kurt Miller, Warren's son and "The Movement's" Producer/Director, and Puyallup native Jim Martinson, a featured athlete in the film and a Gold Medal winner in the 1992 Paralympics, joined Margaret to talk about the documentary, their inspirations, and the organization Make A Hero, which Kurt founded to help get people living with disabilities enjoy the freedom of sports.

The Seattle premiere of "The Movement" will take place at 7:30pm on Saturday, December 3, 2011 at McCaw Hall (321 Mercer Street, Seattle, WA 98109). For more information about the premiere and to buy tickets, please visit the Make A Hero website by clicking here.

KING 5 will air "The Movement" at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 18, 2012.
