Dream Racer Movie Wins Another Award
The Dakar Rally film, which already had won awards in Los Angeles, Barcelona, Milan and New Delhi, won the “Best Feature Film” award during the 2015 Motorcycle Film Festival in New York (Sept. 23-27).
“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,” says Barriere-Varju.
“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.”
Jack Drury, Director at the Motorcycle Film Festival, says “Dream Racer is one of these rare film that stands outside the generic motorcycle genre. A beautiful, thoughtful, exciting, and most of all a film that truly conveyed a spirit of adventure and perseverance.”
Dream Racer shows the Dakar Rally in its purest form as one man – Barriere-Varju – takes on the race on his own with no sponsors or mechanic. Pure racing at one of the race dubbed the “most dangerous in the world.” Since debuting in 1979, the Dakar Rally typically takes riders over 6,000 miles in 15 days through some of the harshest terrain of the world, including deserts.
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 at www.dreamracer.tv.
