Big Air Hits the Big Screen (Jun 10, 2010)
In 1985, at the age of 13, Mat Hoffman entered into the BMX circuit as an amateur. By 16, he had soared to the top of the sport. The Birth Of Big Air is a film that celebrates the career of this noted ‘high flying’ Oklahoman daredevil. Directed by Jeff Tremaine and produced by Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze, The Birth of Big Air is part of ESPN’s “30 for 30” series commemorating ESPN’s 30th anniversary. It will premier on ESPN Thursday, July 29. But, those interested in seeing the film in advance of the network debut have an opportunity to see it on the ‘big screen’ this Friday evening at the IAO Gallery as part of the 10th annual Dead Center Film Festival . The Oklahoma Gazette's Arts & Entertainment Editor, Joe Wertz, tells us more about this film and it’s star.
