Lucy Walker's documentary The Crash Reel follows the rise, fall and recovery of snowboarder Kevin Pearce.

This in not just another action sports film. It is a deeply felt, fully realized telling of an inspirational human saga. Pearce was challenging Shaun White for dominance in the half pipe when he took a bad fall in the halkpipe - the technical name is "Face Plant". This is not an injury an athlete can come back from, but Pearce, with the support of family, friends and the entire snowboarding community, was able to redefine himself and move on with his life. The Crash Reel tells that story. We talked a little about the film with Ms. Walker,
