This is not another Ski Movie.

Exceptional documentary about life, the pursuit of purpose and the challenge to never stop dreaming.

Really well researched and edited. One of the best documentaries I've watched in recent memory and I watch a lot (about 5+ a week). I'll be surprised if this doesn't clean up across the board at Awards Ceremonies.

If you don't know the story of Shane McConkey then let this be your introduction:

Watched it and found myself in an odd space for an hour later. Seeing the takes on his dad Jim, I couldn't get the damn lump out of my throat....Like Father like son. They truly lived for sport and not just because of the glamour that Whistler served up.

I look forward to it but would feel better if they didn't have to use the phrase "progression of his sports" in selling it.
