With special guests, film producer Thierry Donard & Maui’s own two-time world champion kite surfer, Jesse Richman
Thierry Donard always chooses athletes with strong human values for his films. He is driven by a passion for providing them with the environment, confidence, and security they need to fulfill their dreams.
What do athletes from Tahiti, Sweden, Australia, Mexico, America, Hawaii, and Switzerland have in common? The determination to get up after each failure and the courage to continue after an injury or perhaps humility when reveling in success.
Don’t Crack Under Pressure Season Two chronicles the adventures of men and women who are fueled by a zest for life which springs forth from a passion for their art: sticking to a line you’ve chosen to follow. In life as you do in sport, this is the art of living. The film showcases a mix of different thrilling action sports, from surfing to wingsuiting, freediving, skiing, kitesurfing and more.
To create this follow up to Don’t Crack Under Pressure, patience was a prerequisite. State-of-the-art weather forecasting technology was essential to being able to film the most extreme conditions that nature had to offer. When that moment comes, in the face of doubt, in the face of danger, you must not hesitate or crack under pressure.
The filmmakers traveled far and wide to reach extraordinary locations, confron¬ting rare situations in Zapatista country in Mexico, the peaks of the Dolomites, the depths of Polynesia, the heart of the Alps, and the grand finale where we all regrouped in the mythical arena that is the fjords of Norway, a spot where all disciplines can be practiced within a small radius, the promised land of light and breathtaking contrast.
This 90-minute film uses modern technology to project the strongest of human emotions onto the best cinema screens in the world.
