The one that got away; The Edge of Never

The film festival is done and dusted for another year.  I saw some good movies, would have liked to have seen more and unfortunately the one I wanted to see most I missed out on. The movie is called The Edge of Never and is a documentary based on 15year old Kye Peterson.  The official blurb;

In 1996, extreme-skiing legend Trevor Petersen was killed in Chamonix, France. Nine years later, skiing icon Glen Plake decides it’s time for Trevor’s 15-year-old son, Kye, to ski the route that killed his father and join the tribe of big-mountain skiers. In this thrilling documentary, three generations of skiers mentor Kye as he attempts to finish his father’s final run. A ripping adventure tale of a young man coming of age, The Edge of Never is also a rich and subtle portrait of men and women who live big in the face of their greatest fears.

Due to other commitments I couldn’t go to the closing gala where it was being screened, however I know I’ll see it sometime soon as it about a local boy so it will be on again post festival for sure, Trevor’s memory is still very much alive in town and stickers adorned with “Trevor would have done it” can be spotted all over the place.

A wee taster of what it’s all about;
