Above All Else is a documentary from director Yali Sharon of Live Unbound that tells the incredible story of professional skydiver Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld. In 1992, Dan boarded a plane for a routine training jump. The plane crashed, killing sixteen of the twenty-two people onboard. Dan awoke from a coma six weeks later with critical injuries. Doctors told Dan he would never skydive again—he went on to lead the USA 4 and 8-person skydiving teams to multiple world championships. You can find his autobiography here and follow the filmmakers on Facebook here.
