Reach for the Sky - European Premiere

Thursday 15 October 2015
8:30pm - 11pm
Auditorium, Sheffield Students' Union
Join us at the Students' Union for the European premiere of the Cam Zink feature length biopic, 'Reach For The Sky'. The evening will have raffle prizes, giveaways and a chance to meet some famous faces! #zinkandadrink
'Reach For The Sky' features unique behind the scenes looks at Zink’s dramatic 2013 and 2014 Red Bull Rampage campaigns in Virgin, Utah; plus a one-of-a-kind portrayal of his record-breaking 100-foot backflip attempt at Mammoth Mountain—showcasing 100% never-before-seen footage. The movie explores the fascinating life story of one of the sport’s most beloved and diverse athletes, but also delves into the multi-layered psychological elements of fame, physical punishment, and self-examination, to uncover why Zink perseveres through the adversity—even when no one is watching.
 
Hookit Products (Sensus' UK distributor) are excited to announce that they will be hosting the UK/European premier of Cam Zink's feature length biopic “Reach For The Sky”.
 
Hookit Products will also be doing prize giveaways and there'll be the opportunity to win some signed merchandise from the man himself, Cam Zink. 

"Reach for the Sky" is Ryan Cleek's second feature-length film - an emotional roller coaster ride that digs deeply into the roots of Zink's ambition and then launches full speed into a well-paced and edited drama that follows Cam from boy to man, through competitions, into the hospital, on the road, and at home. The story of a career that spans the birth and rise to glory of professional mountain bike freeride competition is told first-hand, by friends and family, and by Cleek, who filmed Zink for a number of years leading up to his most recent exploits at the Red Bull Rampage and culminating with his attempt at a world-record back flip. Viewers will recognize some of the footage, but most of "Reach for the Sky" is fresh or yet to be published archival material. "Reach for the Sky" is a must see for Cam Zink fans - and for anyone who loves mountain bikes. It's one hell of a story.

The evening will also have, raffle prizes, Sensus give aways and a chance to meet some famous faces!
