TFF 2013 Trailer of the Day: ‘McConkey’

Featuring interviews with Tony Hawk, Travis Pastrana and more, this TFF world premiere doc delves into the life and death of extreme ski trailblazer Shane McConkey.

“People like Shane aren’t afraid of death. They’re afraid of not living fully.” Why would someone who had everything—fame, a loving partner, a child—risk it all for a sport? McConkey struggles to find the answer.

Through Shane’s home videos, sports footage and interviews with those who knew Shane best, this documentary attempts to reveal the true nature of a man known best for his dare-devil approach to life. While many of Shane’s amazing stunts are featured, the filmmaker is interested in discovering his spirit and in exploring the  limitless drive that spurred him on.
