In Search of Greatness, produced in partnership with IMG Films, is a groundbreaking feature documentary revealing the true nature and nurture of the greatest athletes of all time.
Through a series of intimate conversations and captivating footage, Polsky leads viewers on an entertaining, thrilling, and inspiring personal journey. The film explores everything from upbringing, coaching, and genetics to creativity, psychology, and philosophy. Featuring original interviews with iconic athletes Wayne Gretzky, Pelé, and Jerry Rice, as well as renowned thought leaders Sir Ken Robinson and David Epstein, In Search of Greatness resonates beyond the world of sport to realms of self-expression, attitude, and human nature. “These icons’ trajectories prove that mastery cannot be manufactured,” says Polsky. “That the systems meant to cultivate us often stifle us instead, discouraging qualities that typically define those who leave a mark on the world: imagination, instinct and individuality.
In a culture at risk of losing its soul to systems of all varieties, these ideas seem more vital than ever. How can a society so obsessed with success fail to understand its essence? Too many coaches, teachers and CEO’s misunderstand what makes a person thrive. They can’t see when the next Mozart stands before them.”
