Produced by Flat-Out Films, Diamond Docs and Spitfire Pictures, and narrated by Golden Globe nominated actor, Michael Fassbender, “1” is an action documentary that brings the glamor, speed, danger and excitement of Formula One Grand Prix racing to the big screen.
Film description as provided by: “1″ The Film
The film tells the story of the golden age of Formula 1, when the sport became terrifyingly dangerous and the drivers were like rock stars with charisma and raw talent, but with many of them paying the ultimate price. “1” follows the story of the drivers who raced on the edge and those who stood up to change the sport forever. It is about the greatest show on earth – Formula 1.
In addition to the theatrical preview, the folks over at Formula1blog.com conducted a fascinating interview with the filmmakers.
Michael Shevloff, Paul Crowder of “1″ the Film
Join Michael, Paul and me as we discuss the movie “1″. It’s a terrific documentary about the halcyon days of Formula 1. The danger, speed and character of the sport with never-before-seen footage that unpacks the sheer drama, tragedy and exhilaration of the sport. Michael and Paul have truly put together a documentary that not only tells the stories as they were but doesn’t tarnish the nuance of what makes F1 special. The efforts toward safety, the cavalier attitudes and even obtuse nature of the sport that arguably killed some of its finest.
I know I enjoyed speaking with both Michael and Paul and I think you will enjoy hearing their perspective on the film and Formula 1. Check out their Facebook page and give them a “like” here.
