*Post-film Q&A with director Daniel Junge, moderated by Doug Fabrizio, host of KUER’s RadioWest.
A generation of Americans grew up worshipping self-styled hero Evel Knievel. For producer/subject Johnny Knoxville and so many others, 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 reflecting on what our heroes represent in ourselves.
