from Lucy Walker's "The Crash Reel"

Friday, we continue our Through the Lens documentary series with Academy Award nominee Lucy Walker's latest film. 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? "The Crash Reel" premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival and we spoke with Lucy Walker and Kevin Pearce. We're presenting free screenings next week.

On Wednesday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m. RadioWest and The Utah Film Center present a number of free screenings of The Crash Reel.
