Thrill to the motorbike hellriders who make their living on the wall of death

A mesmerising look at a rare form of entertainment, Motodrom by the German director Jörg Wagner takes viewers into the midst of a visceral fairground attraction as fate-tempting, gravity-defying ‘hellriders’ race round and round the the ‘wall of death’ on antique motorbikes. Stylishly shot in stark black and white, Motodrom was a festival favourite in 2006 and 2007, appearing at the Sundance Film Festival and International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, among others.

Director: Jörg Wagner
