Storyline

The Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 is known as the most treacherous and grueling off road race in the world where danger lurks around every curve and over every horizon. In this close up look at a rookie off road racing team who are attempting this granddaddy of all races, we join three men who will come together to form a dysfunctional family that they call Team Horizon. Meet Jeff Lloyd once homeless teenager, self-made millionaire, race car driver, Milo Brown, ex-con, junkyard owner, team captain and Toby O'Mara, plumber, chief mechanic, co-driver. We go inside to experience the ups and downs and prove that Murphy's Law truly exists as they bumble through the days leading up to the race. At times they're hysterically funny while also dealing with moments that are heart warmingly sad. It is here we discover what it takes physically, mentally, and emotionally to follow the dream of one man trying to bring his family, friends and a team together to experience life in the moment.

A documentary that is both gripping and heartwarming
11 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Chasing the Horizon is one of the best documentaries you will see this year. Ostensibly about one man's pursuit of racing in the Baja 1000, the film is actually an incredible character study of people from different walks of life who come together in an attempt to realize a collective dream. The drama of assembling a team, building a car from scratch and getting it into the kind of shape necessary for racing one thousand miles off-road is really compelling. The Canter Brothers deftly capture the action and emotion with skilled camera work and an informed eye for finding the drama of the real life situations. They really convey on film the sense of urgency and struggle the lead character and his team are facing as they encounter obstacle after obstacle. And it's all set against a panoramic backdrop of the race, where so many teams just theirs are down to compete and try and win (or even just finish) the arduous race that usually sees less than 1/3 of the entrants actually cross the finish line. The race footage is great too! I have seen this film three times, and was present when it won the Audience Award in Newport Beach. It's a real crowd pleasing piece of work and testament to the Canter Brothers formidable skill as writer/directors. We will be doubtless be seeing much more of these guys and their films in the coming years. If you get a chance to rent Chasing the Horizon, do it. You will enjoy.
