McConkey

 

McConkey is a heartfelt examination of the legacy one athlete left to the progression of his sports, and the path he paved to conquer his dreams. Shane McConkey is revered as a pioneer of freeskiing and ski-BASE jumping, and through his talent and ability to use his trademark irreverent humor he inspired countless lives. Featuring incredible action footage and Shane’s own home videos, McConkey offers a rare look at his most intense risks as well as an intimate portrait of his personal life. Through interviews with friends, family, and other action sports legends, the film celebrates Shane and the way he lived. A film from Red Bull Media House in association with Matchstick Productions, McConkey celebrates the life of one of the world’s ultimate innovators. Proceeds from the film will go to a trust set up for the McConkey family.

“A daredevil subject who will quickly endear himself even to viewers who’ve never heard his name.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“A comprehensive story of one of the most interesting lives lived.” – Tess Weaver, Freeskier.com

“If you’ve never seen McConkey tackle massive Alaskan peaks with just a handful of critically executed super-G turns or soar off thousand-foot Norwegian fjords into freefall, your understanding of what’s possible will be rewired. If you’ve watched him for years, you’ll be cheering all over again.” – Micah Abrams, ESPN.com
