The Commentator. A Kickstarter project.

I’m on board. It sounds terrific. Thanks to Brad Priest for the heads up.

What is the project?

In 1976 Danish Filmmaker Jorgen Leth made the legendary sports and cycling film, A Sunday in Hell, about the Paris Roubaix cycling race. It defined a genre and helped put the Paris-Roubaix on the global sporting map. Leth now comments on the race for television.

We plan to follow Leth as he prepares for and comments on the race. We’ll be with him from his hotel in Paris until the end of the race at the Roubaix Velodrome. Along the way our team of photographers and filmmakers will shoot footage of the race, crowds and Leth himself caught up in the excitement of sport. We’ll capture the intense effort of contemporary pro racers, and will be sure to include stars from cycling’s past.

The Commentator will screen all over the world as part of the Bicycle Film Festival programming.

    Would be nice if one of the prizes included the option of being involved as an executive/ associate producer. If i’m giving over 1000 to any of these kickstarters I would want to have my name in the film.

  2. I too invested in this project via Kickstarter. Despite numerous emails and public comments requesting an update the deadline is gone and I haven’t seen any update since March! Have you any idea what is going on?
