Synopsis

Super Speedway
Fans of auto racing get a whole new perspective on Indy-style competition in this documentary, which was originally shot and distributed in the high-definition IMAX film format. Super Speedway offers an inside look at the nuts and bolts of Indy cars and offers a wealth of exceptional racing footage as legendary driver Mario Andretti and his son (and fellow racing champion) Michael Andretti race in competition with cameras mounted on their cars, capturing the speed and heart-pounding thrills of racing in a way few films have ever attempted. The video release also includes a documentary on the making of the film that offers additional racing footage, as well as a look at how the filmmakers and racers worked together to create Super Speedway. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

To the Limit
Originally released to IMAX theaters, this program demonstrates the tremendous abilities of the athletic body from rock climbers to ballet dancers. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk
The thrill of danger and the heady charge of the unexpected are both examined and reproduced in this documentary. Filmmaker Marc Fafard explores the human biology behind risk-taking -- why it gives some people such a powerful physical lift, and why the human mind and body craves danger. In addition, Fafard presents an up-close look at two of the most dangerous and exciting human pastimes, parachuting and base-jumping. A professional jumper leaps from a 1,300-meter cliff in Norway with a camera in tow to give viewers an idea of how it looks and feels, while parachuting veterans Adrian Nicholas and Katarina Ollikainen face a new challenge as they attempt to recreate Leonardo da Vinci's pioneering 1485 parachute design and see if it works in the 21st century. Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk was shot and initially exhibited in the IMAX high-definition film format. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
