“Carcelén,” documentary film about Roberto Carcelén, two-time Olympian, philanthropist, and Parkinson’s advocate, enters production in New York City and Palm Beach, Florida.
I am excited to announce a web series and feature documentary about my training and competition to enter the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, and Parkinson’s Disease advocacy.
Episodes will be filmed on location in NYC, Palm Beach, Vermont, Washington State, Canada, Europe, Brazil, New Zealand, Peru, and other Olympic qualifying event locations.
“Carcelén” will track my healthcare regimen, progress in training, and competitions. They will also include interviews with trainers, athletes, healthcare professionals and advocates, and my family.
These will be available via web publishing, along with regular blog postings.
The crew, including producer/director Françoise Hovivian and director of photography, George de Castro, of Film Fadette, Margaret Crimmins, of Dogbark Sound, and more, is also developing a feature length documentary, for release after the next Winter Olympics.
The feature will explore my biography, previous Olympic outings, my foundation’s work and advocacy for Parkinson’s patients, upcoming Olympic trials, and the Beijing games.
I was honored to represent Peru at the 2010 Vancouver, B.C. Winter Olympics and the 2014 Sochi games.
I then co-founded the Roberto Carcelén Foundation, to support children’s education in Peru and in The US.
My dream is to use the Olympic platform to call attention to research on Parkinson’s and to set an example of resolve and vitality in the face of this dangerous diagnosis.
Film Fadette was founded by Françoise Hovivian, independent filmmaker, fashion industry consultant, and longtime IT industry professional. For more information, please see:
