On June 18th, Gee Atherton was filming a run down an impossibly steep and rocky ridgeline in costal Wales when he got hung up, pitched over the bars and tumbled to a stop on the rocky slope below. He sustained fractures to his femur, wrist, ribs, nose and eye socket, along with a punctured lung. Video circulated of the crash soon after, but today’s release, “A Knife Edge,” pulls back a bit to show more of the project he was working on, the risks he was taking, and later, his reflections on the accident.
