Attention - A Life in Extremes Reveals the Phenomenon of Extreme Sports
What makes an ordinary man the hero? What difficulties those people must go through? What motivates them? How do they perceive win or loss, and are those 'heroes' actually so self-determined, as it seems at first sight? All of this and more revelas Sascha Köllnreitner, a young and talented director from Austria, in his film debut Attention - A Life in Extremes.
Born on 25 June 1980 in Oslo, Norwegien Halvor Angvik thrilled with his videos of spectacular Wingsuit flights millions of people worldwide. He is by no means a crazy adrenaline junkie; the documentary shows his very deliberate and thoughtful approach to sporting excellence.
In 2002, at the age of 20, he achieved the world record with a depth of 87 meters. He surpassed this depth in 2004 with 96 meters and then with 109 meters in 2006. One of the world's top free-divers and Free Diving World Champion from 2011, Frenchman Guillaume Néry needs no introduction.
