The charismatic Giuseppe Marinoni has been making some of the most desirable bicycle frames in Canada for decades. A competitive cyclist in Italy in his youth, he decides, at age 75, to attempt a World Record for distance cycled in one hour for his age group. Giuseppe’s determination and perseverance lead him back to his native Italy for his training and, ultimately, his attempt at the record. This is a film not only for the spandex-and-helmet crowd but for anyone who believes that a man’s reach should exceed his grasp. Directed by Tony Girardin, 90 min, Italy/Canada/France. Shows start on March 27 and run until April 5 at Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver). For more information or tickets, please visit www.viff.org or call 604 683 3456.
