Sundance 2013: The Crash Reel

RadioWest begins its Sundance coverage with Academy Award nominee Lucy Walker's latest documentary. It's the story of champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce and his near-fatal halfpipe crash in 2009. Pearce's parents and brothers rushed to help with the recovery from his traumatic brain injury, but they were shocked at Kevin's determination to return to the sport. Walker's film follows the family as they struggle with this question: how much risk is too much? Lucy Walker and Kevin Pearce join Doug for a special live, Wednesday night broadcast to talk about "The Crash Reel."

The Crash Reel premieres Friday, January 18th at 6:30 p.m. as Sundance's Salt Lake City gala screening. For more show times and information, click here.

  • Wednesday at 11 a.m., tune in for a rebroadcast of The Book of Love, the story of the kamasutra.
