With 50 million online views between them the world's 4 hottest extreme street sports stars team up with viral filmmakers to try and surpass the beauty, danger and jaw-dropping action of their first films. In Concrete Circus, director Mike Christie (Jump London, Inside Incredible Athletes), brings these men together--featuring a cameo by renowned Canadian parkour/skating star Mathieu Ledoux-- for the very first time and provides a glimpse into what motivates them to put their lives on the line...and to try once again to top their astounding achievements in 4 new films that can be seen in their entirety on our website (see player above).
Urban trial-rider phenomenon Danny McAskill; skateboarding virtuoso Kilian Martin; Storm Freerun's Blue with extraordinary 19-year-old parkourist Paul "Blue" Joseph and, last but not least, BMX flatlander Keelan Phillips have individually produced stunning films that have captured the attention - and the imagination - of tens of millions of viewers. In this feature-length documentary each of the men are followed as they set about making a brand new film in the UK with their film-makers (Stu Thomson, Brett Novak, Claudiu Voicu and Kendy Ty). The premiere of the four new films forms the centrepiece of the documentary.
Can they better their first spectacular films?
Can they jump further, move faster, risk more?
How far do they have to go to go further than ever before?
Why do they push their bodies and minds to such extremes?
Concrete Circus climaxes with an action-packed scene shot at The Barbican in London and directed by Christie, featuring Danny, Kilian, Blue, Phil and Keelan together on screen for the first time.
