SCREENING TONIGHT: McConkey at The Tower Theatre

Posted By on Sat, Dec 28, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Extreme skiing pioneer Shane McConkey, who died skiing in 2009, must have been one of the most filmed athletes of all time. Since boyhood, McConkey, an affable daredevil, was obsessed with taking calculated risks—most of which were captured on camera. Using carefully selected clips, the directors of McConkey expertly match old footage with current interviews that include McConkey’s friends, family and peers—as well as his estranged father, an extreme skier in his time—to perfectly capture the innovator’s indomitable spirit. Of course the 110-minute McConkey includes plenty of radical big mountain skiing as well as the legend's well-documented antics: naked skiing, BASE jumping, gags and goofs.
