Internationally acclaimed film, Dream Racer, won “Best Feature Film” award at the New York 2015 Motorcycle Film Festival. This after tasting success with awards won in Los Angeles, Barcelona, New Delhi and Milan.
Based on the legendary, and dangerous, Dakar Rally, one of the most extreme motorsport races on the planet, consisting of 15 days, 10,000km through the desert and a 50% attrition rate, Dream Racer follows the tale of one man, his motorcycle, his tool roll, and his quest to complete the race. Considering many teams feature millions of dollars of sponsorships, numerous mechanics and support crews (and sometimes still fail to finish), this tale is sure to captivate.
“I wanted to make a film to show that anyone with a dream can actually make it come true, in my case it was competing in the Dakar Rally. Simon Lee (Director) and Adrian Barac (Editor) have done a fantastic job at capturing the core elements of a totally non-scripted adventure and has turned Dream Racer into a timeless story that will stand the test of time and inspire young and old for the next several decades. To be awarded Best Feature Film in New York is a great honour and I truly hope Dream Racer has inspired ordinary people, like myself, in doing extraordinary things with their life and be able to say at the end… yes, I am happy of having lived such a life” says Christophe Barriere-Varju (subject of the film).
Dream Racer has been subtitled in Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, German and Russian and is available for acquisition by TV Networks. Dream Racer is also available worldwide on DVD, Blu-Ray, and Video-on-Demand atwww.dreamracer.tv.
