Ahead of its Australian premiere at the Brisbane International Film Festival this October, Transmission Films has unveiled the trailer for upcoming feature documentary Brabham.
From the producers of the award-winning The Eye of the Storm, Brabham is an unprecedented look at the incredible life of Australian Formula One icon Sir Jack Brabham.
The film will host a red carpet Australian premiere as part of Brisbane International Film Festival on Sunday 6th October, with a second chance for fans to see the film on Wednesday 9th October. Tickets are now on sale here: https://biff.com.au/event/brabham/
Directed by Ákos Armont and co-written by Armont and Tony Davis, Brabham digs deep into the making of a racing legend. Taking on the giants of Ferrari, Lotus and Maserati, Jack secured his legacy by becoming the only driver to win a Formula One championship in a vehicle of his own creation. Brabham looks at the effect that Jack’s single-minded determination had on his life and his relationship with his youngest son David, who continues the Brabham dynasty with his own venture into the cutthroat world of championship racing.
Brabham features narration by acclaimed Australian voice talent, Aimee Horne, and archive footage of Jack’s racing career and includes exclusive interviews with Sir Jackie Stewart and John Surtees, Grand Prix winner Sir Stirling Moss and former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone, giving audiences unparalleled access and insight into Australia’s first Formula One World Champion.
Brabham will screen as part of Brisbane International Film Festival and will be available for FanForce screenings in Australia from February 2020.
