With "The World's Fastest" director Alexandra Lier wants to create a film that affirms life. She accompanied the protagonists (AGE 82-86) now since 1999 and created two photo books about their live and passion. Only this acquired trust made such an intimate portrait possible.
The protagonists embody an old American era that can hardly be found anymore today. They stand for values such as friendship, loyalty, tradition, craftsmanship, passion. With the documentary "The World's Fastest" Alexandra creates a film that captures this past era and it's mentality and knowledge.
The stories of our protagonists give courage. They show that it is never too late to live your passion and to be an life-affirming example to your fellows.
Idea and Director: Alexandra Lier / Producer: Laia Gonzalez / DOP: Frank Schlotterbeck / Editor: Imke Koseck
