Being Evel

1h 39m Documentary, Sport, History 2015

The real story behind the myth of American icon Robert "Evel" Knievel and his legacy.

BEING EVEL tells not just the incredible story behind the myth of 1970s American daredevil icon and pioneer for todays Extreme Sports scene Robert “Evel” Knievel, but also the previously untold and very much darker tale of the man behind the flamboyant cape; a one-time outlaw whose wildly dangerous career spanned 75 ramp-to-ramp motorbike jumps and saw him break every bone in his body.

_“There was a real darkness there — behind the American flags and the fringed jackets and the fireworks — and BEING EVEL, to its credit, isn’t afraid to face it.” _ — Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
