‘LIFE IS JUST A RIDE’ – Documentary – Our BMX

Been a long while since I watched this (I went to the premiere last year), but “Life Is Just A Ride” is a documentary that gives you a look at the backend of Simple Session. From the creator of the event, Risto Kalmre, a phenom of the early days of Simple Session, Madars Apse, and of course the safari himself, Reed Stark. Grab yourself a cup of tea and have a watch…

⁣ “Life is Just a Ride” is a documentary that brings the positive mindset of three different characters during Simple Session, one of the biggest and longest-running action sports events in the world, to the big screen. Reed Stark is a world-renowned BMX rider from the United States. Madars Apse is one of the best European skateboarders, whose professional career began at Simple Session. Risto Kalmre is one of the masterminds behind the event that came to life from a pile of dirt 20 years ago in a small Northern European country, Estonia. The movie also features Bam Margera, Darryl Nau and many other well-known people in the scene.

“Life is Just a Ride” is a thought-provoking and uplifting movie that works as an antidote to a bad mood, poor weather, or when the ju-ju is just not working for you. “Life Is Just a Ride” was first screened at the 20th edition of the annual Simple Session last February for a sold out venue of 500 where it received standing/cheering ovations from the fans. It was followed by a successful festival premiere at the Tallinn Black Night’s Film Festival, where the uplifting documentary was well received by the younger audience in the Just Film youth programme.
