Locally Made Documentary Playing at Denver Film Fest Now


By The Denver Egotist / /

On July 3, 2015, a Flight for Life helicopter plummeted from the sky outside Frisco, Colorado, violently crashing into a parking lot. Dave Repsher, a Summit County Flight for Life nurse, climbed out of the crashed helicopter engulfed in fuel and flames. Within seconds, a huge fire broke out, and Repsher suffered full-thickness burns to 90% of his body. He was given a negative chance of survival. D-REP: Fight for Life is the incredible story of one man’s fight to live and how love and a community of support helped to make the difference in his recovery.

The film was funded and executive produced by long time Denver creative director, Jeff Kosloski and his team at UCHealth with a very talented group attached to make the film. It was shot over two years in Denver and Summit County to get the story and is now screening at the Denver Film Festival.
