A London screening for I Am Bolt, a feature documentary about the record-breaking Olympian sprinter, will double as a fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK next Saturday thanks to an Israeli filmmaker.

Lior Linevitz (27) is a writer and editor who, according to her IMDB page, worked on the documentary Five Seconds of Summer: How Did We End Up Here? and the short Amesia. She is currently an editor with Fulwell 73, a video production company based in Camden, and has spent the last two years working on a film that tells the story of legendary runner Usain Bolt. The film, distributed by Universal Studios, will be released on November 28th.

With permission from Universal, Lior has taken the opportunity of turning a London screening of the documentary into a charity event to raise money for Parkinson’s UK, a leading Parkinson’s support and research charity.

The screening will take place next Saturday (03/12) at 18:30 at Everyman Cinema in Belsize Park, London. After the screening there will be a discussion with the directors, Benjamin and Gabe Turner. All ticket sales will be transferred to the Parkinson’s UK.

Her hand trembled
During her military service in Israel as bureau chief commander of the recruiting office in Tel Ha-shomer; Linevitz noticed that her mothers hand had been shaking for four months. She turned to a neurologist she knew from the army and was told it sounded like Parkinsons. Her mother was diagnosed illness that most people do not know however, is incurable and existing treatments only relieves tremors. Lior did not give up and has directed all of her efforts to raise money to fight against Parkinsons.

On the event page, Lior wrote: “Parkinsons UK lead, influence and fund groundbreaking research to ensure new and better treatments, in years rather than decades. They empower and support thousands of people living with the condition to feel in control of life with Parkinsons, and bring hope to those living with the disease.”

“All are welcome,” she added, “so please pass on to nearest and dearest and anyone else who might want to see the film together, speak to the directors about the making of the film or just hang out with a nice group of people for a drink after.”
