CRITICAL FILM - A documentary about a very special weekend in July of 2010. A weekend of unconventional cyclocross racing. It only took 126 km of dirt, gravel and cobblestones devided in 4 stages between Dresden and Leipzig, 80 racers, 9 hours, 35°C, 600 liters of water, a ton of food, a world cup quarterfinal and many many enthusiastic souls, to make this an unbelievable experience.
They call it 'CRITICAL DIRT - A study in crossification'.
ERTZUI FILM has captured this event along the dirt with our very own perspective.
Thanks to 12rec Netlabel, Earstroke Records & Karl-Marx-Stadt for the musical support.
PIR was a mud fest so a black and white sepia look seemed to be a good fit. Also lots of gooey slow motion. The music choice is also painfully obvious - I'm only embarrassed to say I didn't think of it first. Not really anything subtle about this one - but it seems in cyclocross, subtlety buys you nothing!
Thanks to Jamie for the Primus song idea & Matt for his death defying GoPro bike cam work.
