This film presents a psychological study of an iconoclastic silver medal–winning Olympic ski jumper, whose quiet demeanor as a carpenter betrays his obsession of flying farther down the hill than any other.

 

The AAM and Aspen Film present three documentaries in concert with Abraham Cruzvillegas: Hi, how are you, Gonzo? Each film celebrates the ingenuity and variation that arise from unfavorable circumstances.
