British documentary-maker Lucy Walker (Waste Land, Countdown To Zero) continues her eclectic career with this moving tale of snowboarder Kevin Pearce.
A Winter Olympic hopeful, set to make the US team in 2010, Pearce fell from his board during a practice session, hit his head and suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Part sports doc, part familial saga, the film focuses on the aftershock of the accident, assembling materials from a wealth of home-movie footage.
With some narrative threads suddenly dropped, it’s raw-edged and sometimes jarring. But as a reminder of how fragile life is, it’s spot-on.
