Short Film Profile


The world of the hellriders: men and motorbikes, speed and stunts, gasoline and adrenaline. Racing their antique bikes around the wood-panelled walls of a circular tower, the riders appear to defy gravity while the captivated audience peers down from above. MOTODROM stylishly captures the atmosphere in beautiful black-and-white imagery using energetic camerawork and pulsating sound. A dying fairground attraction portrayed in a thrilling homage at 5000 rpm.
