Logan & Sons director Christopher Kippenberger’s documentary IOM TT: In Loving Memory about the revered Isle of Man TT motorcycle race has been honored as an official selection of the London Motor Film Festival. The film has been shortlisted for Best Event Coverage and the winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on November 29th.
The 20-minute film follows professional and amateur riders as they traverse one of the world’s most dangerous competitions, racing through Isle of Man’s stunning natural beauty at 200 miles per hour. The film, which premiered at this year’s Jalopnik Film Festival, examines the mysterious pull that keeps riders coming back every year to a race where more than 200 riders have perished over the course of its 96 iterations.
“It’s an honor to have IOM TT included at the London Motor Film Festival,” said Kippenberger, who is now continuing to ride this territory by developing a television series documenting the world’s most dangerous automotive races.
IOM TT has earned praise for its arresting visual beauty and the stories of past and present competitors. Jalopnik calls the film “mesmerizing,” and Gizmodo applauds it as “probably the most compelling 15 minutes of motorcycling.”
Kippenberger, the Berlin and Miami-based leader of Studio Kippenberger, has been called “the most interesting man in car porn” and the “Terry Richardson of car videos.” IOM TT signals the filmmaker’s new direction toward longer-form storytelling. His commercial clients include BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
IOM TT is available on-demand on Vimeo.
