Gravitas Ventures Nabs Daredevil Documentary "Being Evel"

Gravitas Ventures has acquired the North American rights to “Being Evel,” a documentary about the iconic American daredevil Robert “Evel” Knievel. Written and directed by Daniel Junge, “Being Evel” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month and was met with great acclaim.
The film not only traces Knievel’s rise to superstardom, but also examines his legacy as the King of the Daredevils through the lens of subsequent generations of sports stars who have been inspired by his hair-raising stunts.
“Evel Knievel and this film flat out kicked ass,” said Nolan Gallagher, founder and CEO of Gravitas Ventures.
The film will be released in theaters and be made available on VOD this summer.
