This amazing film from Arunas Matelis was chosen to be Lithuania’s entry for Best Foreign Film and Best Documentary at this years Oscars.

Filmed over several years at the Giro d’Italia, Matelis and his crew joined the medic teams to reveal the unseen footage of the riders at the back of the race – the so-called “water carriers,” “domestiques,” “Gregarios” – who forego their careers and personal victories for the sake of victory for their team leader.

Its heroes are athletes undertaking the most difficult challenges, while remaining in the shadow of leaders, without the right to personal victory. Through their sacrifice, they pave the way to victory for the band’s stars, becoming a universal symbol of sacrifice.
