If you're not familiar with Ken Carter - watch the video posted below. It's hilarious, sad and tragic. A must see.
This feature-length documentary introduces viewers to Ken Carter, a Montreal-born stunt driver who made a living by risking his life. The film shines a light on the intense preparation that led to Carter's first attempt to jump a car across a mile-wide stretch of the St. Lawrence River -- a 5-year period during which the dare-devil raised a million dollars, erected a 10-storey take-off ramp and built a rocket-powered car.
