Are you a current SPACE Member? You can come to our free Member Appreciation screening of The Crash Reel on Friday, January 24th.

THE CRASH REEL seamlessly combines twenty years of stunning action footage 

with new specially-shot verité footage and interviews as it follows U.S. champion 
snowboarder Kevin Pearce and exposes the irresistible but potentially fatal appeal of 
extreme sports. 
 
An escalating rivalry between Kevin and his nemesis Shaun White in the run-up to the 
2010 Olympics leaves Shaun on top of the Olympic podium and Kevin in a coma 
following a training accident in Park City, Utah. Kevin’s tight-knit Vermont family flies 
to his side and helps him rebuild his life as a brain injury survivor. But when he insists 
he wants to return to the sport he still loves, his family intervenes with his eloquent 
brother David speaking for all of them when he says, “I just don’t want you to die.” 
Kevin’s doctors caution him that even a small blow to the head could be enough to 
kill him. Will Kevin defy them and insist on pursuing his passion? With his now 
impaired skills, what other options does he have? How much risk is too much? 
 
Directed by twice Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker (Devil’s Playground, 
Blindsight, Countdown to Zero, Waste Land, The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom).
