Prayers to the Gods of Guerrilla Filmmaking

Prayers to the Gods of Guerrilla Filmmaking

Six strangers meet in Hong Kong for a three week no-budget film shoot, full of enthusiasm for the project. But as time wears on cracks begin to show as tight schedules, cramped conditions, location problems, personality clashes and the stress of shooting on the fly combine to put strain on the entire cast and crew. And it doesn’t help that nobody’s getting paid. As time passes they struggle to remember why they signed up in the first place, leading to reflections on the value of being a ‘starving artist’ and the limits of artistic integrity – and explosive confrontations that jeopardize the whole project.

Carroll Shelby came from humble beginnings working as a chicken farmer in rural Texas. He exploded into the auto-racing scene by beating all the top-tier drivers of the era and winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959. All while still wearing his chicken-overalls. Carroll had a heart condition that nearly killed him, forcing him to retire from racing. He started Shelby American and assembled a rag-tag team of hot-rodders to execute his vision of building groundbreaking sports cars like the Shelby Cobra. He also led Ford and the GT40 to multiple victories at Le Mans over Ferrari. Shelby’s cars, driven by the greatest drivers in the history of racing, cemented his legacy. He is the only man in history to win Le Mans as both a driver and a manufacturer. And is still the only American auto-manufacturer to win the World Manufacturing Championship.

Rocket science meets the auto industry as “APEX” follows a thread that starts in the design studios and R&D labs where these “fighter jets of the street” are created, and leads to a perilous racetrack in Germany where drivers can reach new heights of speed and performance — if they dare. Equal parts human drama and speed, “APEX” follows Swedish entrepreneur Christian von Koenigsegg, a lifelong sports car enthusiast on a personal quest to build a “mega” car whose golden ratio defies all expectations for a hypercar’s velocity and power, while competing against the biggest names in motorsports for space on the world stage. With insights from top engineers and designers, “APEX” pulls back the curtain on the top-secret development facilities at Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren and Pagani, where awe-inspiring hypercars are imagined and built, and puts you inches from the action, as top drivers shake down the latest hypercars, flat-out on some of the world’s greatest racetracks.

The Surire Salt Flat is located at an altitude of 4300 m in the Chilean High Plateau and is one of the most remote places in the world, keeping the treasure of untouched nature with all its beauty but also holding an allurement: a huge amount of borax, promising the mining industry profits at unknown levels. Surire, metaphorically tells us in an outstanding visual way the story of our planet – about the very important subjects of the disappearance of traditional indigenous culture, untouched nature, the environment, and the clash of new and old.
