McConkey is a heartfelt examination of the legacy one athlete left to the progression of his sports, and the path he paved to conquer his dreams. McConkey is revered as a pioneer of free-skiing and ski-BASE jumping, and through his talent and ability to use his trademark irreverent humor, he inspired countless lives. In this film from Red Bull Media House in association with Matchstick Productions, McConkey celebrates the life of one of the world's ultimate innovators. The New York Times says McConkey is "not about why he was such a thrill-seeking risk-taker but about appreciating his success in living life on his own terms."

McConkey will touch your heart and leave you breathless, what's even more amazing - it's all true.
