Samuel Goldwyn Films has obtained worldwide distribution rights to Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt’s four-year project “Havana Motor Club.” The film is a timely documentary that explores not just the exciting world of underground car racing, but also a nation amidst political change as seen through the eyes of the racing community.
The film is described by Samuel Goldwyn Films as both “a pulse-pounding film about underground drag racers in Cuba and their pursuit to hold the first official car race since the 1959 Revolution” and “a personal, character-driven story about Cuba’s vibrant community.”
Perlmutt previously co-directed the documentary “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel,” about the prolific Harpers Bazaar editor. The film was also released by Samuel Goldwyn Films.
“Havana Motor Club” had its world premiere at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. The film is planned to be released in 2016.
