Watch: 'Sunshine Superman' Trailer - One of the Most Inspiring Docs
Experience a life lived without limits. I LOVE this documentary. No seriously, I really love, love, love it with all my heart (read my perfect review at NYFF last year). Sunshine Superman is a must-see thrillseekers documentary about Carl Boenish, the father of the BASE-jumping movement, the man who started the sport of jumping off of buildings. It's an incredible, heart-wrenching, remarkable story of a man who dared to dream as big as possible, who never let anything scare him, and who truly lived. It's so inspiring because Carl, a goofy lovable character, has such a big heart and really doesn't let anyone get him down, even when they start to claim "this is a crime!" He still has that smile on his face, and he still keeps jumping. Rock on.
Here's the first official trailer for Marah Strauch's doc Sunshine Superman, in high def on Apple:
A heart-racing documentary portrait of Carl Boenish, the father of the BASE-jumping movement, whose early passion for skydiving led him to ever more spectacular - and dangerous - feats of foot-launched human flight. Experience his jaw-dropping journey in life and love, to the pinnacle of his achievements when he and wife Jean broke the BASE-jumping Guinness World Record in 1984 on the Norwegian 'Troll Wall' mountain range. Incredibly, within days, triumph was followed by disaster. Sunshine Superman is directed by Marah Strauch, making her feature directing debut. The film first premiered at the 2014 New York Film Festival last year (where I saw it and fell in love with it - read my review) and will be released this year by Magnolia Pictures. Sunshine Superman hits theaters starting on May 22nd. Watch and be inspired.
