The Formula 1 documentary “1,″ directed by Paul Crowder and narrated by Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender, will have a special screening on opening day of the 20th Anniversary Sedona International Film Festival on Saturday, February. 22, at the Sedona Performing Arts Center. Set in the golden era of Grand Prix racing, “1″ tells the story of a generation of charismatic drivers who raced on the edge, risking their lives at every race during Formula 1′s deadliest period. These are the men (Lauda, Hunt, Andretti, Stewart, et. al.) who stood up and changed the sport forever.
“1″ is described as a must-see for all film-lovers and for anyone with an interest in all things automotive. Unprecedented access to F1 archival footage by the filmmakers provides a human reality aspect to this truly “life and death” time in racing history.
The screening of “1″ will act as the official announcement of Reels and Wheels: An Automobile Film Experience, scheduled to launch next year at the 2015 Sedona International Film Festival. This experience beginning February 19, 2015, will include all things automobile, including a pavilion with famous movie cars, automobile-themed films, professional drivers and celebrities, and interactive, hands-on displays.
