Being Evel


A generation of Americans grew up worshipping Evel Knievel – watching him every Saturday on Wide World of Sports and buying his Ideal toys. He was the ultimate antidote to the disenchantment of the 70′s. But few knew the incredible and often complex aspects of his epic life, which, like his jumps, was sometimes glorious and sometimes disastrous. Academy Award-winning director Daniel Junge delivers thrills and spills, while also reflecting on what our heroes represent in ourselves. (U.S., 2015, 100m, Gravitas Ventures, DCP)
