A Sunday in Hell

Dublin Wheelers Cycling Club presents:

A Sunday in Hell


In 1976 a little-known Danish film maker, Jorgen Leth, embarked on an ambitious project to capture the spirit of cycling’s toughest and cruellest Classic, Paris-Roubaix, in a new and epic way.
Leth tried to show every significant moment during the day, to portray
its heroes – Roger de Vlaeminck, Eddy Merckx, Freddy Maertens – as mythical figures, and used radical techniques - the helicopter mounted Wescam, an experimental choral soundtrack - and the finest cameramen of the day. The result was probably the finest-ever depiction of a single-day cycle race, a film that has itself become a Classic.

Best selling writer William Fotheringham has written a widely praised “biography” of Leth’s meisterwerk – how it was conceived and made and what became of the men and the places in it – and will be on hand to answer questions about the film and its maker.

All proceeds from the event will go to Pieta House who provide support for those in suicidal distress or engage in self-harm www.pieta.ie
