Gorgeous extreme sports documentary investigates the psychology of risk-taking

Posted by Rob Alderson,

We’ve seen some awesome extreme sports documentaries before and on purely aesthetic terms Attention: A Life In Extremes is up there with the best of them with some staggeringly beautiful shots. But where it particularly piques our interest is in its focus on the psychology of its three protagonists – wingsuit flyer Halvor Angvik, freediver Guillaume Néry and cyclist Gerhard Gulewicz wth filmmakers Adri-Alpe determined to get to the bottom of why these men put themselves through what they do. Check out their Kickstarter campaign and keep an eye out for the full-length release coming soon. Gnarly.
