Jumps and Stunts
Jumps and Stunts
Each year the Wex brings families and film fans a long weekend of incredible movies for all ages: fiction and documentary, live action and animation, features and shorts, American-made and international, contemporary and classic. Fun activities and events are also part of the schedule, often involving special guests, hands-on projects, and even tasty refreshments.
One of the 2008 festival's highlights is sure to be JUMP!--an inspiring, dramatic, and entertaining documentary about competitive jump rope that is sure to make you forget whatever notions you have about this childhood pastime. Follow the link below to the film's web site to watch a trailer and find out more.
After the encore screening of JUMP! on Sunday, several of the featured jump ropers show their moves in a jump roping performance and interactive demonstration that is sure to leave you inspired, invigorated, and motivated. The featured jumpers are Tori Boggs from West Virginia, Nick Woodard and Jeff Maus from Texas, and Lee Reisig from Idaho.
