Synopsis

A Charity Screening on behalf of the Calvert Trust

Not the typical Sports Documentary, The Crash Reels charts the journey of Olympic Snow Board medal contender Kevin Pearce, as he recovers physically and emotionally from a crash in practice that left him in a coma for 6 days.

Lucy Walker’s film looks at the pressure on athletes to push the envelope in attempting ever more spectacular moves and the rivalry between competitors who are literally on the edge.

open_quote Another memorable piece of storytelling from the Oscar-winning director. close_quote Liz Beardsworth Empire Magazine
