Weekend of a Champion 1972
In 1971, Motor Racing fan Roman Polanski decided to make a film about his friend Jackie Stewart, who was then at the height of his career as a Formula One driver. Having no experience with documentaries, Polanski opted not to direct the picture himself (though he now claims to have co-directed it in all but name); instead, he recruited a guy named Frank Simon and they both accompanied Stewart to Monaco for that year’s Grand Prix, which Stewart subsequently won.
Polanski was given intimate access to Stewart's world for three days, both on the track and off. The result is an extraordinarily rare glimpse into the public and private life of a gifted race-car driver at the height of his powers. Forty years on, Polanski and Stewart meet once again. In a remarkable post-script, they discuss the sport, both past and present, with a unique and unmatched perspective.
