BEING AP takes an in-depth look at one of the world’s greatest sportsmen, award winning jump jockey AP McCoy.
Ageing but fearless, nearing the end of his career yet still willing to sacrifice everything to achieve his dream in a competitive and dangerous sport, this feature length documentary is a real celebration of an incredible man.
“When AP McCoy first became champion jump jockey in 1996, Roger Federer had never won Wimbledon, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid
in the Jamaican backwaters and Muhammed Ali had just lit the cauldron at the Atlanta Olympics. Two decades later and AP McCoy remains the world’s greatest jump jockey and one of the UK’s most talented sportsmen” (LLoyd Burns).
The film follows AP through his exhaustive training routine, the complications he suffers from the various injuries he’s endured throughout his career and the effect this has on his family. This intimate portrait covers all the elements that make AP the greatest jump jockey the world has ever seen and focuses on the unique combination of skills that have sustained his career and the team around him that have contributed to his success.
