The film chosen for the first of the Indie Film Fernie (IFF) series is the story about Marinoni's transition from champion cyclist to master bike frame builder.
Marinoni: The Fire in the Frame was a Top 10 Audience Favourite at last year's Hot Docs Festival. As a special treat we will have the director, Tony Girardin in attendance to introduce his film, and for a Q&A session following the film.
To cycling fans, his name is legendary. In 1964 Giuseppe Marinoni left Italy for Canada, and went on to become one of the most trusted bicycle builders in the world. The film tells the life story of the bike racer, and the bike maker who has made between 20 and 30,000 bicycle frames during his 40 year career, and his 2012 attempt, at the age of 75, at the one-hour distance record for the 75-79 age category in Montichiari, Italy.
