Road Race (2005)

The film explores the transitory nature of this underground sport and its relationship to contemporary car culture, the traditions of gypsies and their relationship with horses. The race involve a group of travellers in a rolling roadblock on motorways and dual-carriage, while two trotting horses, with sulkies and riders, run a very fast race lasting a couple of minutes on the road. Bets have been placed, large sums of money exchange hands, travellers come from miles around, the police turn a blind eye.
