LIFT An Ode to Love..

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.
