Bruce Mclaren documentary A
cclaimed director Roger Donaldson ( Sleeping Dogs, Smash Palace, and The World’s Fastest Indian) is working on a new feature documentary on the life of Bruce Mclaren. Donaldson is on the hunt for Kiwi motor-racing enthusiasts with rare audio-visual material (photographs, home movies, audio recordings, etc.) of Bruce Mclaren.
“Legendary Kiwi race-car driver and engineer Bruce Mclaren was tragically killed testing one of his cars in 1970. We are very keen to find archival footage that documents this extraordinary New Zealander’s life. So, if you have or know the whereabouts of any potentially interesting film, please be in touch with us. Photographs, home movies, souvenirs; if it is about Bruce, we would love to see it,” Donaldson said.
The documentary has received investment from the New Zealand Film Commission, Images and Sound, and the Giltrap Group.
The producers ask that anyone with material featuring Bruce Mclaren, or associated people in his life during the ’50s and ’60s, contact researcher Phoebe Shum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
