BIGGER STRONGER FASTER: SPORTS ON FILM

BIGGER STRONGER FASTER: SPORTS ON FILM

This year, DokuFest grows bigger, stronger and faster with a special programme showcasing documentaries on sports and the unstoppable competitive spirit some human beings possess.


Programme Bigger Stronger Faster: Sports on Film is curated by associate programmer Pamela Cohn and includes Senna by Asif Kapadia; Moon Rider by Daniel Dencik; The Crash Reel by Lucy Walker; Bigger Stronger Faster by Christopher Bell and The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters by Seth Gordon.


"Bigger Stronger Faster consists of five international documentaries - two just-released films, and three that I consider small 'classics' of the form. All feature young (and some not-so-young) men exploring what it means to devote a life to being the best at something, whether it be half-pipe extreme snowboarding, race car driving, long distance bike racing, weightlifting – or, holding the highest score on record for the video game known as Donkey Kong," says curator Pamela Cohn.


The full slate of films will be announced on July 24th on our website.
