Share The Crash Reel: Film Screening and Discussion with the Director and Star

Event Details

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

Organizer

Boston University Dean of Students

We are the Dean of Students office and the Division of Student Life. We mentor and counsel, and promote an environment that encourages intellectual exchange and individual expression. We help to provide programs and a rich residential environment where students can interact with each other, faculty, and staff. We are dedicated to providing an environment that will enable students to effectively engage in academic and intellectual work, community service, and other activities that enrich their time at Boston University.

We interact with students and student associations to represent student concerns and to provide programs and services that facilitate both personal and academic growth.

We advise student organizations, plan ways to acclimate students to the University, set and regulate standards, offer academic support, help you navigate your career goals, provide a living room for the campus, give you the means to come alive culturally and ethnically, make certain the University experience is accessible, enrich our surrounding community through service, and create a vibrant and welcoming living-learning environment.
