Lucy Walker and champion USA snowboarder Kevin Pearce, Sundance 2013, “The Crash Reel”

Just when I think my friend, documentary filmmaker Lucy Walker has told her finest story– which I believed in Waste Land, artist Victor Muniz’s landfill art project—she raises the bar. And, she grabs my heart in doing so….

This evening, The Crash Reel — the story of champion USA snowboarder Kevin Pearce— how he smashed open his head (literally), suffered a brain injury, and came back a champion of humanity– will debut at 9 pm on HBO.

It’s Kevin’s story, how he fights to win first as a snowboarder and then to make peace with his disabilities; but it’s also the tale of an incredible family who challenge, feed, and nurture each other’s spirits. (*Keep an eye out for Kevin’s brother David, who often steals the show.)

This one’s not to be missed. A REAL GEM.

Through his foundation LOVE YOUR BRAIN, Kevin brings awareness to those with brain injuries and some great gifts help the cause. CHECK IT OUT. SPREAD THE LOVE: LOVE YOUR BRAIN/KEVIN PEARCE
