Event description

Description

This award winning HBO documentary follows the life of snowboarder Kevin Pearce after he suffers a Traumatic Brain Injury while training for the 2010 Olympics. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker follows his injury, rehabilitation and decisions about participating in the sport afterward while simultaneously layering an intimate look into Kevin's supportive family dynamic. A Q&A with special guests Lucy Walker, Kevin Pearce, and BU Medical representatives will conclude the evening.

"Ultimately, "The Crash Reel" transcends the conventional sports doc for precisely this reason: it refuses to moralize the painful reality of extreme sports, and then explores the juggling act of love and caution that each athlete, and their families, practices every day." -RobertEbert.com
