Thunderbird Entertainment is pleased to release a first look at the trailer for Chasing Evel: The Robbie Knievel Story in advance of its premiere at the Nashville Film Festival tonight. The film was just nominated for Best Feature Documentary at Edmonton’s NorthWestFest, where it will have its Canadian premiere on May 12th. Thunderbird will be distributing Chasing Evel: The Robbie Knievel Story worldwide, with official premiere dates to follow.
The documentary is based on the life and career of Evel Knievel’s son Robbie who was the most celebrated daredevil in the 80s and 90s. Even with major TV broadcast events, merchandising deals, world records, fame and fortune, Robbie has always been overshadowed by his father’s legacy. The film is directed by Jesse James Miller, and provides exclusive access, never before seen footage, and insight from the entire Knievel family.
