Dana Brown Shoots Daredevils in Motocross Doc 'On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter'

Dana Brown Shoots Daredevils in Motocross Doc 'On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter'
Five years after director Bruce Brown made the seminal surfing movie “The Endless Summer,” he made what many considered the definitive motorcycle movie “On Any Sunday” (1971), which included some of the world’s leading bike-race enthusiasts, including movie star Steve McQueen (whose jump over Nazi barbed wire in “The Great Escape” had been feeding adolescent fantasies since the Kennedy administration). Thirty-three years later, Dana Brown -- who helped his father turn out “Endless Summer II” in 1994 -- has directed “On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter” which includes some of the more hair-raising riders in the motocross world and some of their more spine-tingling stunts. (The film is currently in limited release.) “‘On Any Sunday’ was the film I saw when I was 11 or 12, and made me want to become a filmmaker,” Dana Brown said in New York this week. “I thought it was amazing. And then I had this apprenticeship

Film Review: ‘On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter’

Film Review: ‘On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter’
Motorcycles of all shapes, sizes and velocities speed around the track — and, quite often, through the air — in “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter,” director Dana Brown’s effusive valentine to two-wheeled motorized transport in all its incarnations. Taking his father Bruce Brown’s seminal 1971 motorcycle docu “On Any Sunday” as a model, the younger Brown canvases the globe from Vancouver to Vietnam as he explores motorcycling as sport, hobby, practical necessity and even a means of artistic expression. The result is, much like Brown’s superb 2003 surf docu “Step Into Liquid,” an intoxicating blend of exotic travelogue, death-defying derring-do, and affecting profiles in courage and perseverance. Brown’s pic should delight gearheads and grease monkeys of all stripes in its targeted theatrical run (on 250 screens nationwide), with a long home-viewing shelf life to come.

Steady Trading at Spain’s San Sebastian Festival (Exclusive)

San Sebastian – Bille August’s “Silent Heart,” Mia Hansen-Love’s “Eden” and Russian ice-hockey docu “Red Army” saw Spanish distribution deals at a 62nd San Sebastian Festival, which looks set to go down for steady trading announcements, as sales agents seek further visibility and deals on Toronto titles, bullish Spanish movie lineup and the mass presence of Latin American producers, as San Sebastian consolidates, as one of the top pan-Latin American film meets of the year. Reflecting that, industry attendance increased from 1,290 last year to 1,370, a 6% rise. Many sales agents and producers at San Sebastian will now reconvene at Ventana Sur.

Among sales agents, Wild Bunch, The Match Factory – with a well-received “Phoenix” – Films Distribution, Film Factory Ent., Red Bull Media House, MK2, TrustNordisk, Visit Films, Wide Management, LevelK and Jour2Fete all saw deal announcements.

Over the past 20 years, extreme sports’ popularity has grown, boosted by the ubiquity of clips on YouTube, and TV networks, such as Espn, which created the X Games, a kind of alternative to the Olympics that features skateboarding, BMX and surfing as well as more extreme sports.

The 2013 Savage Cinema edition, a partnership between San Sebastian and Red Bull Media House (Rbmh), a major sponsor of extreme sports events, showed that there was a theatrical audience out there for movies about extreme sports, selling 85% of all available tickets, with closing pics “Into the Mind” and “Cerro Torre” surpassing 95%, per festival figures.

Exclusive: 'On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter' Poster Debut

  • Fandango
Long before live sports coverage and countless reality shows saturated every corner of the television market, Bruce Brown's pioneering motorcycle racing documentary On Any Sunday blazed a trail across movie screens back in 1971. Brown, who had made his name with the equally stunning surfing doc The Endless Summer, captured a wonderful variety of motorcycle racers and fans, including actor Steve McQueen, competing fiercely (and treated like every other rider) at the height of his stardom. The film earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature. Now, 43 years later, Brown's son Dana Brown has made a follow-up documentary, On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter. As might be expected, the younger Brown follows in his father's footsteps by focusing on racing, but he...
