Netflix has announced a new docu-series from Oscar-winning documentarians Orlando Von Einsiedel and Joanna Natasegara. “Heart Of Invictus” aims to reveal the human stories and resilient spirit behind The Invictus Games – an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, and veterans. The series will follow a group of extraordinary competitors from around the globe, all service members who have suffered life-changing injuries or illnesses on their road to the Invictus Games The Hague 2020, now set to take place in 2022.
The multi-episode series will join the competitors as they train, and along the way reveal powerful stories of resilience and hope. The series will also follow the organizers as they work to prepare for the Games, postponed until next Spring, and as they partner with each nation’s team to support their competitors over the coming year.
The show is the first between Archewell Productions, founded by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Netflix.
