Bruce Mclaren doc­u­men­tary A

New Zealand Classic Car - - Letters -

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 phoebe@gen­er­al­film.co.nz.
