The documentary is based on the life and career of Evel Knievel’s son Robbie who was the most celebrated daredevil in the 80s and 90s.  Even with major TV broadcast events, merchandising deals, world records, fame and fortune, Robbie has always been overshadowed by his father’s legacy.

Ever since he was 8 years old all Robbie Knievel wanted was to be like his father. And he did. In record fashion. For over 5 decades Robbie Knievel quietly became the most decorated jumper of all time, jumping over 350 times, breaking over 20 world records and pushing the limits farther than anyone ever had done. “Evel broke bones, Robbie broke records.” By the late 1990’s Robbie was also smashing television ratings live on Fox. You’d think a father would be proud, but there’s only one Knievel.

The film is directed by Jesse James Miller, and provides exclusive access, never before seen footage, and insight from the entire Knievel family.

Chasing Evel had its world premiere at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival in February.
