Irina Kalentieva. Authentic, Intimate and behind the scenes.


This short film gives a unique behind the scenes peek at a professional mountain bikers routine as the race approaches.

Not just any professional mountain biker, but the two times World Champion Irina Kalentieva, it is an emotionally charged documentary which catalogues the hours, minutes and seconds in the lead up to the start gun.

The dramatic editing, the choice of images and the effects used has resulted in a short film which is causing a fair amount of excitement, not least in the bike scene.

Filmed in 2010 at the Offenburg World Cup in Germany, the film crew (over from Los Angeles) needed 3 days to get the material they needed, and shot over 100 hours. The music was composed by Alex Puro.

Race Day will be showing at a number of short film festivals.
