“This compassionate account of the thrills and risks of extreme sports makes it required viewing for both aspirants and enthusiasts.”~Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: Direct from its premiere at the 2013 NZ Film Festival - champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce's life-changing injury and foolhardy determination to return to the sport professionally is chronicled in this compelling and poignant documentary.

Pearce's bitter rivalry with childhood friend Shaun White amplifies the on-course thrills and spills through the ever-increasing risks taken at top level extreme sport, but the true stars that emerge in this show are Pearce's stoic parents and his Down's Syndrome-afflicted brother who join him on his emotionally-conflicted journey of recovery. Stylish presentation is augmented by an impeccable indie-pop soundtrack.
