The Crash Reel (USA) focuses our attention on the world of extreme sports. Academy Award–nominated documentarian Lucy Walker (Waste Land) delivers a deeply moving portrait of champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce as he struggles to get back on the slopes following a near-fatal accident. Employing a wealth of exhilarating snowboarding footage to capture both the adrenaline-rushing thrill and the life endangering risks of the sport, Walker helps us comprehend Kevin’s willingness to take his life into his own hands once again while asking serious and fundamental questions about the entire culture of high-risk sports.
