The Big Bike Film Night 'Feature Series' -A SUNDAY IN HELL
'A Sunday in Hell' is a 1976 Danish documentary film directed by Jørgen Leth. The film is a chronology of the 1976 Paris–Roubaix bicycle race from the perspective of participants, organisers and spectators.
“Arguably the best film ever made about professional cycling.” – Peter Cowie, International Film Guide.
Paris–Roubaix is the most famous and usually the most dramatic of the spring classics "monument" races. Much of the latter portion is over narrow, cobbled tracks that choke with dust on dry days and become slick and muddy in rain. For the riders it's a challenge to keep going without puncturing or crashing.
The hellish Sunday took place on April 11, 1976 when the champions of cycle-racing battled for victory in the classic and gruelling annual bicycle race – Paris-Roubaix.
Danish with English Sub-titles.
