Directed by Lucy Walker | 2013
“a thoroughly winning docu portrait of former pro snowboarder Kevin Pearce”
—Variety

Once a fearless master of gravity-defying leaps and mid-air flips, champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce suffered massive head trauma after an accident in 2009—a brush with death that brought his Olympics-bound career to a sudden halt. Oscar-nominated documentarian Lucy Walker brings together a wealth of vérité footage, juxtaposing years of astonishing airborne feats with an unflinching look at Pearce’s long and agonizing rehabilitation. The result is an unforgettable testament to the passion of a phenomenal athlete and the tireless support of the family and friends who guide him through his recovery.

Producers: Julian Cautherly, Lucy Walker
Director of Photography: Nick Higgins
