Wirksworth Cinema to screen Pantani biopic on week of UK release!

Post by Jonathan Holmes on Fri Mar 21, 2014 10:01 pm

From Wirksworth's Northern Light Cinema: -

Thanks to our good friends at Soda Pictures, we're delighted to announce we have the rights to screen Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist on its national release week! So we're riding high, so to speak...

Marco Pantani was the legendary and enigmatic Italian cyclist who died of a cocaine overdose ten years ago, on Valentine's Day.

The film charts the extraordinary rise of the gifted climber who won the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France in 1998, before being plagued by allegations of doping and succumbing to depression. In 1999 he was thrown off the Giro for irregular blood values linked to EPO use. He died in a hotel room in Rimini, a day after his 34th birthday.

It premiered in Italy last year and mixes archive race footage, reconstructions (including filming in Derbyshire with several local and 'soon-to-be-famous' amateur cyclists) and interviews with riders including Bradley Wiggins, Greg LeMond and Evgeni Berzin.

The film is written, directed and co-produced by James Erskine and Victoria Gregory, whose credits include the BAFTA Award-winning film, Senna, a biopic about the charismatic Brazilian F1 driver, and the Oscar winning Man on Wire.

Book Now for Sunday May 18th or Wednesday June 4th.
