Biography

Aimee Mullins naît en 1975 avec une ectromélie longitudinale externe (hémimélie fibulaire) (c'est-à-dire sans péroné) et est ainsi amputée sous le genou à l'âge d'un an. Elle passe sa scolarité à la Parkland High School d'Allentown, sa ville natale, puis elle étudie à l'Université de Georgetown à Washington. C'est là qu'elle pratique l'athlétisme à haut niveau aux côtés d'athlètes valides dans le cadre de la National Collegiate Athletic Association, devenant alors la première athlète amputée à participer aux compétitions de la NCAA. Elle participe aux Jeux paralympiques de 1996 à Atlanta dans les épreuves du 100 mètres (éliminée en demi-finale après avoir couru en 17 s 01) et du saut en longueur (où elle se classe 7e et dernière de la finale avec un saut à 3,14 mètres).

Ses études à l'Université de Georgetown lui permettent aussi de bénéficier d'un programme du Département de la Défense et de faire un stage au Pentagone.

En 1999, elle défile pour le couturier britannique Alexander McQueen à Londres, avec des prothèses en frêne sculptées à la main. Par la suite, elle est nommée parmi les 50 plus belles personnes au monde par le magazine People. En 2004, elle est photographiée par Nick Knight pour le calendrier Pirelli.

En 2002, elle apparaît dans le film expérimental de Matthew Barney Cremaster 3. L'année suivante, elle poursuit sa carrière naissante d'actrice dans Cinq Petits Cochons, épisode de la série Hercule Poirot, adaptée de l'œuvre d'Agatha Christie. En 2006, elle joue le rôle d'une journaliste dans le film d'Oliver Stone World Trade Center.

Côté cinéma, elle intègre aussi quelques jurys de festivals, tels que le Festival de Kars en 2008 et le Festival du film de Taormine en 2009.

En 2007, elle devient présidente de la Women's Sports Foundation et en 2011, elle devient l'une des égéries de L'Oréal, pour les publicités de la gamme de maquillage Accord Parfait.

In a post-drought apocalypse US, people kill for water. Ernest Holm lives with his son Jerome and daughter Mary in their small townhouse and field. His wife has been involved in an accident earlier and is now permanently hospitalized in a facility where she can walk while wired to a special frame. While everyone else has left the area, Ernest and his family remain, as Ernest believes that the land will grow once more if only there is irrigation. Ernest gets water for his family by delivering supplies to the "water men" who extract water from deep wells through a government deal. When his mule breaks its legs and he has to kill it, Ernest goes to Sam Lever's auction house and buys a robotic carrier machine called Simulit Shadow ("Sim") to replace it, beating the offers of Flem Lever, Sam's son, a young, troubled man who has been seeing Mary without Ernest's consent.
