What we're are most excited about is seeing a 35mm print of A Sunday in Hell!
From the mind of Jorgen Leth, one of Scandinavia’s filmmaking legends, comes the ultimate portrait of one of Europe’s most grueling cycling events. Few people think of mud, sweat, blood, pain, agony and other unmentionables when something as sweet-sounding as “bicycle race” is uttered, but the annual Paris-Roubaix tour, one of professional cycling’s oldest contests, has rightly earned its moniker of “A Sunday In Hell.” Armed with what seems like an entire French village’s worth of cameramen, and a brilliantly minimalist, Popol Vuh-esque synth score, Leth seamlessly builds the mounting tension throughout the 1976 tour’s events — from pre-game breakfast pig-outs, to the frantic opening salvos by race frontrunners, flat tires, bruised riders carried away on stretchers and beyond. With a deft, Spielbergian flair for tracking an endless number of racers’ positions throughout the journey, Leth brilliantly pours on the claustrophobia, as both racers and their carloads of support teams hurtle towards each other in a death-defying 40MPH ballet (conducted mostly on shared small-town cobblestone roads.) A bike fanatic’s dream documentary, and one of the great sports films of all time.
Dir. Jorgen Leth, 1976, 35mm, 111 min.
Cold Brew Coffee for the soul.
Two friends and many times collaborators, have collaborated. Mr. Jesse Carmody has started cold brewing coffee out of his treehouse in Topanga Canyon, CA and was looking for some design assistance. So Mr. Joshua Porter!
stepped in and stepped it up. Looking good guys!
We're carrying PUMP @ GSC if you're interested in a sip!
