World Premiere, 2023 Santa Barbara International Film Festival
Faced with a traumatic injury that renders you permanently disabled, how would you reinvent yourself? Full Circle (2023) follows two individuals on a parallel path, 50 years apart, connected through time and space by their shared resiliency and refusal to let their passion for life be limited by their injuries.
“Full Circle is a storytelling feat – a must-see movie that will push your understanding of what it means to be an athlete.”
—Sofia Jaramillo, National Geographic
In 2014, Trevor Kennison’s life was forever altered by a broken back. In 1968, Barry Corbet—an intrepid skier, mountaineer, explorer, filmmaker, and Jackson Hole legend—broke his back in a helicopter crash. Frustrated by a pre-ADA culture that did not accept or support the disabled, he reinvented himself, becoming a seminal leader in the disability community. His legacy paves the way for Trevor’s superhuman feats.
