The Crash Reel

The Crash Reel offers a straightforward and honest look at professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce’s traumatic brain injury and his rehabilitation afterward. Kevin was an elite snowboarder in direct competition with Shaun White leading up to the 2010 Winter Olympics. In the ever-competitive arena of professional sports, both were training to master new, higher-flying tricks and on a training run in 2009 in Park City, Utah, Kevin hit his head and ended up in the hospital for months.

The film captures Kevin’s rehabilitation, as he and his family and friends tackle the intensive process of rebuilding his permanently altered life. While touching on the competitiveness of professional sports and the potential negative impact of subsequent concussions on athletes, this film is also about the encompassing love and support of the Pearce family as Kevin learns to live with his injury.

I highly recommend this insightful and touching film, full of both the stunning footage of elite snowboarding and intimate coverage of a devoted family navigating a life-changing event.
