Portrait of a legend

MCCONKEY tells the story of Shane McConkey, the Canadian skier whose thirst for the spectacular led him into the world of extreme skiing at an early age. By combining archival footage, interviews and breathtaking action sequences, this long-awaited film details the life and career of a man who was considered a legend by his fans and peers. Whereas many extreme sports movies appeal only to a niche group of insider fans, MCCONKEY manages to cater to a wide audience by focusing on the man behind the myth.
