Richie McCaw Film: Chasing Great


Press Release

New York, NY – February 23, 2018 – Chasing Great, a documentary that chronicles New Zealand Rugby legend Richie McCaw will have a premiere showing in the United States on February 28th at Cineopolis Chelsea in New York City in advance of its national rollout.  Abramorama, an industry leader in film distribution, marketing, and promotion, will release the feature documentary across the United States and Canada with national support from Augusto, Oktane Media and Falco Ink.

Through the theatrical and subsequent digital release, fans and moviegoers will have ample opportunity to watch this intimate portrait of the New Zealand hero.

Chasing Great follows Richie McCaw through his final season as he attempts the goal of captaining the All Blacks to the first ever-back-to back Rugby World Cup Wins. Woven through that final season the film tells the story of Richie’s life. With unprecedented access to Richie and a remarkable family video archive ‘Chasing Great’ is the story of how a shy farm boy went on to be one of the greatest rugby players of all time. Until now Richie McCaw’s achievements have been well documented, but little is known about the man himself. ‘Chasing Great’ takes the audience inside his world. What emerges is a very personal insight into the high level international sport and a psychological profile of the mind of a champion.

A full schedule of locations across the USA, as well as screening dates, will be available at


US-based rugby clubs and teams can schedule screenings of the Chasing Great in local theaters, an event which can raise visibility for the team and be used as a fundraising event. Interested teams should contact John Broker at for more details on this opportunity.
