The Devil at Your Heels

Directed by Robert Fortier - 1981

This feature-length documentary introduces viewers to Ken Carter, a
Montreal-born stunt driver who made a living by risking his life. The film
shines a light on the intense preparation that led to Carter's first attempt
to jump a car across a mile-wide stretch of the St. Lawrence River -- a
5-year period during which the dare-devil raised a million dollars,
erected a 10-storey take-off ramp and built a rocket-powered car.
