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.

Don't be put off by the jock-ish 'extreme sports' subject matter, this is an insightful, deeply affecting journey of emotional discovery beyond the thrill of speed and the roar of the crowd.
Another memorable piece of storytelling from the Oscar-winning director. Liz Beardsworth Empire Magazine
