Set in the golden era of Grand Prix Racing '1' tells the story of a generation of charismatic drivers who raced on the edge, risking their lives during Formula 1's deadliest period, and the men who stood up and changed the sport forever.
I caught this gem at the IFC Center back in June and have been waiting for an opportunity to tell my friends to go see it for themselves. I was in NY on 11/4/08 and this movie brings it all back. Though much of the humor comes from the younger characters, it's the older ones who ask the tough questions.
The movie is made up of videos shot by real people, documenting their own experiences on that day. Jeff Deutchman, the director, simply shares them with us, without much fuss or propaganda.
What ends up being most meaningful, oddly, is not the moments that make up the day but rather the glimpse this movie allows us of ourselves. It's amazing to see this day--history in the making, we knew--just two years later.
