‘McConkey’ Trailer Will Make You Believe a Man Can Fly

Shane McConkey - Action

Shane McConkey was an extreme sports enthusiast, a professional skier and a man who defied physics for a living. He sadly died in a 2009 skiing accident, but his memory of dream-chasing lives on in the aptly titled, upcoming documentary McConkey.

Featuring family members and professional friends like Travis Pastrana and Tony Hawk, the film seeks to focus on McConkey’s life while pushing beyond it to find the impact he made on the sporting world and as an inspirational figure.

It’s playing at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and it’s got a trailer that’s both adrenaline-fueled and uplifting. Check it out for yourself:

There’s no word yet on distribution, but Red Bull Media House and Matchstick Productions are promising all proceeds from the film will go to a trust set up for McConkey’s family.

A veteran of writing about movies for nearly a decade, Scott Beggs has been the Managing Editor of Film School Rejects since 2009. Despite speculation, he is not actually Walter Mathau's grandson. See? He can't even spell his name right.
