Phase 4 Films has set a theatrical release for Lucy Walker’s snowboarder documentary.

The Crash Reel, which will be released on December 13, tells of US champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce’s near-death accident, recovery and subsequent reappraisal of life.

Pedro Kos and Walker wrote the project and Walker produced along with Julian Cautherley.

Sheila Nevins of HBO Documentary Films, Dan Cogan and Geralyn Dreyfous served as executive producers.

The Crash Reel was recently nominated for a Gotham Award and premiered at the start of the year in Sundance.
