London will play host to the much-anticipated ‘McConkey’ film next Monday when the UK premiere of the new feature-length documentary on one of action sports’ most talented, influential and entertaining figures, Shane McConkey, comes to Leicester Square.
“McConkey” celebrates the life of one of the world’s ultimate innovators: Shane McConkey.
Featuring incredible action footage and Shane’s own home videos, as well as heartfelt interviews with those who knew him best, "McConkey" offers an intimate portrait of the athlete’s personal life – an inspiring look at how a man who didn’t fit the mold was able to find success on his own terms, staying true to his dreams and living each day to the fullest.
“What’s special about this movie for someone who’s not into action sports at all, is just seeing the love, the affection and the passion for life,” said Norwegian skier and BASE jumper Karina Hollekim. “To find something that makes you happy, something that makes you want to get up every morning and attack life with a huge smile.”
Tickets for the premiere are now available to purchase at http://www.redbull.com/uk/en/events/1331611010823/mcconkey-the-movie
