Kent Bassett (director, producer, editor of This Might Hurt) is an Emmy-nominated editor and filmmaker from Arizona. He’s edited a number of feature documentaries that have premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, SXSW, AFI Docs, Doc NYC, and on PBS. His latest film as editor is Not Going Quietly, which was nominated for Best Feature and Best Writing by the International Documentary Association.

Much of the drive to spend seven years making This Might Hurt came from Kent’s own struggle with chronic tendonitis and repetitive stress injury as a 22-year-old. Unable to type or even turn a doorknob without severe pain, he was forced to drop out of college. Although he saw several doctors and tried physical therapy, strength training, and opioids—his pain grew steadily worse. It wasn’t until he had an insight into the role of the brain in triggering real physical pain that he was able to completely recover.
